A good, short article put out by Adobe. In my short turn as a technical writer for a UX/UI Design team, I think one thing they appreciated about me was that I did have an understanding of how UX should work, and the information architect/UX designers were often open to suggestions. I often looked at their work as something I probably would’ve enjoyed doing if I had more experience on Axure or another wireframing tool. (Still playing with a few different ones when I have the chance.)

As technical writing become more and more visual, even with things like buttons to select or abridged text for mobile devices, having a strong UX foundation–even if you aren’t a UX designer–is pretty important these days. You don’t need to be a designer yourself to understand good design, just like you don’t have to be a painter or sculptor or writer to appreciate and understand good art or a good book.

When you have a chance, look into learning more. You’ll find it highly beneficial.
