My ears always perk up when someone gets meta and starts writing about writing.

I always love reading how others approach their process.

What kind of writing are you referring to, specifically? Tech documentation?

I come from a background in Composition, and I'm really interested in the "house style" for different tech companies. What are the most challenging parts of writing tech documentation?

What kinds of style choices do you make when considering your audience?

Great read, Alex!

Glad you enjoyed this Kasey!

Mostly technical articles, how-tos, guides, etc. The most challenging part for me has simply accepting that not everything you write is going to be profound and it's ok to be feel vulnerable.

In a strange way, this post was me accepting these fears and I've been writing as much as possible ever since.

That's one of the hardest barriers for most writers to overcome. Awesome to hear that you've embraced the process!
