A thing or two about technical communication and me as a Writer
I’m doing a Technical Communication course and I find it’s the perfect approach for me as a Writer. Technical Communication teaches writing that is concise. As you will find, my novel You Can Rise Up is very short – just over a hundred pages long. I hate…well not hate, let me rephrase…I have a preference for writing shorter documents. That’s where technical communication is helpful for me as a writer. Sad to say, You Can Rise Up may be my last novel. I have discovered that I am better off writing documents that are concise. This does not mean that I will resign to writing only ‘technical material’ as technical communication may suggest. I will still do creative writing, but for the moment I am very much taken with blogging, and writing articles was one of my first loves. I may at some point publish a short story even, but I do not foresee me writing any full length novel or book anytime soon.
If You Can Rise Up is indeed my last novel, then I am happy I was able to produce such a vibrant and mysterious storyline. It’s a short novel, but it’s an attention-grabber. It is a tear-jerker, but it is also an eye-opener. It encourages you to strive against all odds, and ‘rise up’ to a more positive state of mind and character. It is fiction, but it is realistic. It is a worthwhile book for people needing encouragement after they have made a negative turn in life, but want to get back on track with what is important, and what is meaningful, and right.
