Once upon a time, a terrible thing happened: I graduated. I had to get a job and leave amazing friends behind. They were too amazing to stay behind, though.

Pitch and Tagline (Technical Writing Exercise)

This week’s technical writing exercise asks you to prepare short descriptions of what your unwritten e-Book would be about, and why it would be worth reading.
