Writers, do you know what CSS stands for? Crunchy Salmon Skittles? Crisp Sweet Sandwich? Clueless Silly Seagull?
I guess we’re going backwards now!
Are you feeling slightly uncomfortable? There are definitely things to consider before you enroll in a computer science course for your next writing gig.
Another concern its that coding is nothing like writing. Desiring a writer with coding skills sounds like wanting a writer with dental skills; it seems like an odd connection. (I actually came across a job ad today that wanted the ideal candidate to have both professional marketing and dental experience.) If you really think about it though, it doesn’t matter that the two fields are different. Aren’t you good at many other things besides writing? (I bet you really are.)
I say take advantage of online resources and spruce up your writing abilities a little if you haven’t already.
