Tam K. says she’s no technical writer, but she dreamed of it:
Anyhow, how I wound up with this gig I don’t know, because technical writing really isn’t my bag, baby. And I was getting all bogged down in nomenclature arguments about everything from pistol parts to horse tack.
You can tell she’s not a real technical writer. Real technical writers don’t get bogged down in what technical terms to use; they just rearrange the sentences provided by the engineers without comprehending the content or terms.
No, real technical writers get bogged down in Times New Roman versus Garamond.
Take my word for it. I’ve sat in multi-hour meetings hashing it out.
