In late 1998, I made my first attempt at writing, managing to complete a whole scene before returning once again to reality.

These experiences have shaped my technical writing skills and given me a broad, multi-faceted perspective of documentation system design and the need for instructions to be simple, accurate, and easy to maintain.
