You are lucky. When I say I am a Technical Writer, the person usually nods slowly and then winds up saying something like, 'So what exactly is that?'

Arghhhhhhhhhhh!

I don't see why we need to have one title. We don't all do the same thing. Who cares? How many managers have you met who don't have any subordinates? I've met a handful. I don't think it really matters besides making job searching and resume/cover letters easier. I thought we liked challenges!

I am ready for the next topic. :-)
