Like it is with most of us, I found my calling on the path I least expected. The craft of writing was only a source of earning for me. Although, in the longer run, I realized that earning money was only one of the things that writing did for me.
I am a certified technical communicator. But, from the heart and soul, I have always been a writer. I consider writing as neither job nor task, but a philosophy I live by. For me, it is introspection; the way I would like to look at life.
Back in my school days when I wrote my first novel, I didn’t realize that I would be keen towards learning about writing and later make a living out of it. Even when I stepped into the professional world, writing was only a part of my job – I did it because my clients thought I was good at it.
But, after I gave up sales and became a back-staged, support professional by giving content services where my words spoke on behalf of my clients, I realized that there was more to the story than just communication. There was the calling – the calling to wear many hats as a professional writer.
Today, I let my words usher people to solutions. I am a troubleshooter. I help them find, unearth the truth. I am a detective. I am a storyteller, a speaker, and a self-published author. I take pride in helping my readers locate the remedies for their pains. And, I am happy to torch their ways through their sometimes pitch-dark confusion.
Other than speaking at and participating in the STC India annual conferences, I have bored people with my blogs, poems, and stories on a lot of social networking sites and in here. I started this blog because I love writing about technical communication and sharing with all of you some writing techniques that I have designed.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope that you like what you read here. It is a collection of posts on technical communication and a lot of other topics that interest me.
