Tom starts by making the point that most technical writers he has met along the way are far from “average” or “normal.” This, he writes, is because of the number one characteristic of a tech writer. They are all nuts! OK, maybe not certifiably crazy, but just a little nutty. Probably a better way to describe them is to say they are quirky.

The reason for this, you ask? Most people in this world tend to be either more technical or more creative. As we know, you can be very right-brained and still be creative, but most people tend to fall into one of the two hemispheres. In contrast, technical writing is the process of taking very technical information and processing it so a larger group of readers can understand. This involves strong writing skills, understanding the technical inputs and a creative way to display this information for the reader.
