Some will argue that technical writing is still a very small part of the job market. The statistics for technical writing jobs are about the same as in the past. It’s a niche that requires significant commitment and is less competitive than other career fields, but a lot of people do it.
Technical writing is a bit more niche than painting, but that’s not to say that it’s less challenging. It’s not as common (in the U.S. at least) as painting, but it’s still a niche that many people are willing to put in the effort to be successful in. A technical writer is a person who has specialized in one area of the writing process, such as writing technical specs or writing manuals.
Technical writing is also a type of writing that requires you to have good grammar, spelling, and punctuation skills. It can also be a bit more repetitive and difficult to write than other types. Like painting, you really feel like you are trying to learn a craft. You do this by writing a couple of paragraphs or pages of prose describing what you did, and then writing several more paragraphs or pages outlining the results.
I know people who do this for hours a day. You will often hear them describe the process as “the best two minutes of my day.” I think that the point of writing technical specs is to get you thinking about how things work, and to challenge your thoughts and ideas. You can get very bogged down in technical writing if you do it for long periods of time. It’s also a good idea to get out of your routine every now and then.
I think technical writing is a useful skill to have. It forces you to think about the details of a problem from different perspectives, and to consider new angles of thinking. You can even write about your own experiences, and give advice to others who might need it. The point of writing is to provide you with the mental framework that you might need to solve problems. Writing technical specs is like a puzzle you can solve with just a few things you’ve figured out.
I’ve been writing technical specs for most of my career. It’s actually a great way to make a solid point without wasting a lot of time. I think the trick is to find a problem and a solution, and then set out to solve it. A good technical writer can be a great troubleshooter as well, and will often find the solution to a problem before you do. In a way, writing technical specs is like writing a script.

This was another one of those things that has gotten my attention for my comment about a couple of pages, but I can personally attest to how many people have been following and reading the comments.
This is a great example of how the technical writing community has grown and matured. In the early days of Reddit, writing technical specs, writing technical documentation, and writing technical manuals was the only job a technical writer could have. Now there are dozens of different jobs that technical writers can have, as well as being able to pick up a lot of different skills.
The technical writing community has truly embraced the internet. The writing community has grown to love the community, because it allows them to do what they are good at, and because they are so accessible. The technical writing community just keeps growing as this new community grows.
