In most cases, all you need to do is progressively improve the things under the skin, rather than get a new skin.
Writing is that folklore that records, refers, and rekindles life. It is that act of play where you are both the actor and the audience.
The fact is, we all have those four colors in us. Yes, one color is dominant within us all. But, is there more to the story than meets the eye? Find out.
As I continue to choose a (better) combination of tools and methodologies, I continue to steer farther away from the focus on the content. We have complicated the process of creating and managing that content. What’s the way out?

As a seeker of information, I am like every other “user” or “audience” – I am like YOU, dear reader. I prefer to take the shortest or quickest path to the resolution. Much like you, I get petrified when I can’t find the shortest route. Much like you, I get petrified when I see unorganized or insufficient information. It’s as simple as that. This puts a lot of responsibility on the shoulders of technical communicators and user experience (UX) designers. Sadly, there is still no guarantee that we, the information seekers, would access the right information tidbit at the right time; or even if we do, we get to use it correctly.
Although I don’t regard technical writing and instructional designing different, I do acknowledge that the tools and methodologies both use are quite different.
