Q:Hi! I found you under the 'technical writing' tag and would love to ask you some questions if you don't mind. First off, how did you get into the technical writing field?
I think it would be most accurate to say that I stumbled into it by volunteering to write and edit some documentation for a project I was providing technical support for. A lot of people cross over into technical writing from development and technical support positions, because they end up writing so much documentation for their projects that the career switch makes sense.
