I've been monitoring this discussion for a bit and had to add my two cents. On
Long Island, there are companies willing to pay that much for a technical
writer. However, the writer better be well rounded and not locked into writing
user manuals only. The writer should also have much more than 3 years of
experience, be well versed in various PC graphics programs, and be able to
easily pick up on technical material. I'd say that 50K is exceptional for
someone with 3 years of experience and a limited technical background.
