What my desk usually looks like first thing in the morning.

I think it’s really cool that you work with pen and paper. I’m a technical writer and I still prefer pen and paper but most technical writers I know only use their computers. They’ve completely done away with pen and paper.
I do a number of different things. It really depends on how I’m feeling that day! Some days I’ll use a voice recorder, others, the computer. When I have a bit more time that’s when the pen and paper come out.
How long have you been working as a technical writer? I’ve contemplated that profession a few times. Do you like it?
Wow, a voice recorder too? I’m so freaked out by the sound of my voice recorded I’ve been using Voxer on my iPhone to keep in touch with friends and my voice sounds so strange to me.
I like Technical Writing. I find it very fulfilling especially if I have written something that can be printed out. Looking at my work – printed – gives me a form of satisfaction that is just priceless. I know, it sounds a bit cliche I’ve been a tech writer for 5 years now, since 2007. Before that I was studying to be a computer systems engineer. I graduated and then realized I was happier writing technical documents than I was doing digital design.
I hope you’re having good week Karen! I was naughty and went to the MAC store today as they released a few of the new collections (MAC Shop/Cook and Vera). I picked up the Color Added quad, Black Tea Sheen Supreme Gloss and Wholesome Fluidline.
Yup — I use a recording app on my iPhone. Sometimes it’s faster for me to rattle stuff off into a voice recorder, and sometimes I’m in a place where a computer isn’t nearby, like the bathroom, LOL! I get a lot of ideas in the shower, and if I don’t record them quickly the second I step out of the shower, I forget. That’s when the voice stuff REALLY comes in handy.
I’m so glad to hear you like your job! It’s such a positive thing when writers get to use their craft in a way that brings them satisfaction. Does your family ever give you grief about not going the engineering route? I swear my mom still hopes that I’ll come to my senses and go to law school.
OOH! Your MAC haul sounds fabulous!
Hehe you’re the second person to tell me you get ideas in the shower. I don’t get any ideas in the shower. Usually I’m daydreaming.
I’ve always liked writing but I’m not very creative so factual writing is a bit easier. Yeah, job satisfaction is priceless and I’m glad I have it for now at least
I don’t think my family knows what technical writers really do. They think I write user manuals I get a bit of grief over not wanting to move into management and become a Technical Lead or some sort. They don’t see a career path for me to continue being a writer but I do so there’s a bit of difference in expectations there. But I’ll be okay..after all I have to do what makes me happy and i don’t think management will make me happy.
When I saw the title I thought the picture was going to be a blank banana, lol!

I drank my coffee out of the same mug this morning! Brings back such great memories
