If I was the one interviewing you for the management position, I would see
the stint spent as a documentation writer as a *positive* thing. It would
mean that you had become reacquainted with what it is that doc writers need
from their managers. Of course, my philosophy is that managers are there to
be facilitators for those who they manage, which isn't the philosophy
everywhere, so YMMV.
