Hello. How are you doing?

Grad school is fun - I hid out in grad school for years. It might be
overkill for tech writing though. I know several tech writers with no
degree. It's still a field where talent can get you in the door.

>> insight on your work

Well, I'm not sure about the quality of any insight I have, but ...

A lot of tech writing is knowing how to organize information. You have
a big mess of information about a topic, and it's crucial to know what to
present first, what to present second, and so on. I'm not sure this skill
can be taught.

It's not like writing essays/stories at all. We use lots and lots of really
simple sentences.

>> I'm also a member of the STC

STC is good, especially for making contacts. That's the best way to
find jobs.

Good luck and hang in there.

Hi Stephen,
I was doing a search for people in my age group here. Your profile also caught my eye because you're a tech writer. I'm in grad school at present and hope to get into the field when I graduate. I'm also a member of the STC and could really use some insight on your work. I always enjoy talking with other atheists when I can find them!
Susan
