Gendernization in Technical Writing

The two days were packed with sessions and workshops and I could pick and choose any to attend. Some of them were just too technical for me and I felt they were not that important, given the content area I cover. However, there was one session that caught my attention, at least the name did.

The Mind-Body Connection

One of the people on my team has a routine. She studies a topic she has to write about, takes some notes, and then goes on a walk. Often when I begin designing a project, I’ll throw up notes on a whiteboard and pace back and forth in front of it while tossing a baseball in my hand.

Challenge and Reward

I love making music.

This February, I took part in a world-wide event to create ten original songs or 35 minutes worth of original music during the shortest month of the year, called the RPM challenge. This isn’t a contest, but a challenge, and the reward is the satisfaction of having created something that wouldn’t have existed if I didn’t just do it.
