Do you really want to be a technical writer? Though it is one of the best paying professions, but you have to sacrifice a lot of your normal life to be the best.
This is a great article by Ajay Narang. As Ajay points out, technical writing is not for the faint of heart! I think much of this list applies to technical communications as a whole. Can you relate to this list? Do you agree or disagree with some of these "sacrifices"? Let me know in the comments below.
