Video: Managing Time as a Sole Writer

This 35 minute video is a distillation of a presentation I gave at the 2010 STC Summit in Dallas. (STC is the Society for Technical Communication.)

This is for people who have moved from being part of an editorial team to being a sole writer/editor. There are tips for time management, setting expectations, and living with cutting corners.

UPDATE: Here are a couple of articles saying similar things about cutting corners:

1. Tom Johnson’s Duct Tape Technical Writers

2. Sarah O’Keefe’s A strident defense of mediocre formatting
