I used the word "paradigm" in a sentence today. May the Lord have mercy on my soul.
Wrote an article today for a trade magazine that wanted to run a news blob about a subsidiary of EmployerCo. (It doesn't have actual journalists on staff apparently, so it just gets the companies to do the texts. Lazy wankers.) Reminded me why I quit the newspaper world and went into technical writing.
If you're doing documentation, you can expect people to come and tell you what's wrong in your texts. That's fine. If you're doing articles, people will come and tell you what they don't like about your text. Which is infinitely more annoying.
