The View from Number 2
With all its food, fun, and festivity, the holiday season just wouldn’t be complete without a little bah-humbug. Every year I cozy up with Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol and enjoy anew the journey of Ebenezer Scrooge with the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.
On the technical communication front, hopefully no grueling release or freezing AC has us hunched at our desks like hapless clerk Bob Cratchit. A more relaxed pace at the office may enable even editors (we Scrooges of the TC world) to visit the past, present, and future of our careers, turning our thoughts to lessons learned, new strategies, and old friends in the profession.
It’s the perfect time to attend this month’s meeting at the Lake Mary Marriott—our chapter’s traditional holiday celebration and annual reunion. We’ve got a great venue, menu, and door prizes. I hope to see you there!
