Hobbies and pastimes of technical writers everywhere
Hallo fellow techcomm folks! Do you have a hobby?
Mine is fairly pedestrian. I like to go walking in the bush. It blows away the cobwebs. Well, actually, I often have to blow away the cobwebs myself. They festoon the pathways in the early morning. It’s best to keep your mouth closed when strolling in the Australian bush, or you’ll find yourself spitting spiders.
Sometimes a bird pops out and does something interesting, and I blog about it.
Of a dark winter’s eve I can perchance be found tickling the ivories. Perhaps significantly, other members of the household are usually to be found in the furthest corners of the house.
So fess up
What do you get up to when the pleasures of the pen pall? (Aside from avoiding sentences like that.)
For years I had a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon pasted above my desk. It showed Calvin’s father with a mangled bicycle, obviously the result of a bad stack. The caption read: “The secret to enjoying your job is to have a hobby that’s even worse.”
