Submitted my first technical article after a two-year self-imposed hiatus. While I’ve written a few small web pieces and whitepapers for a dozen conferences or so, (oh, and a book), this was my first article, and I was rusty! Keeping it short, sweet and organized. Eliminating all the extra verbiage but keeping enough transition and organization so the reader could follow. Submitted the first draft to the editor and expect to get back a red-inked-bloodbath. It’ll take a while to get into the swing again, but it’s good to be writing.
