I apologize that I have not had any updates on my MadCap adventure. I will return to that shortly, and I do thank those of you who have chosen to follow or have “liked” Mr. Procedure.
But this is about the free offer I have made before in this space as well as in several groups on LinkedIn. Over the past four or so months, I have been offering my course called Writing Operating Procedures free to anyone who wrote. Those who originally replied received a course-in-preparation (it was about 3/4 complete). I have since completed the course, made it a course/book format (meaning it functions as a stand-alone book as well as for a text for in-person training), and cleaned up a lot of stuff I am embarrassed to have provided the first time. I have distributed slightly over 100 copies of the course, in .pdf format, and have received some very complimentary comments back.
If you have not yet received the course, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will send it along (as a .pdf, I am not in danger of running out). To those of you who have received the course, thank you for your support. And I would love to have any feedback you care to provide. Someone wrote back and assumed I was not interested in comments. I told them that is far from the case! As an offering to the technical writing community, I want to hear what people have to say. This book is one element of a larger set of books related to what I term instructional communication. As more of these come to fruition, I will announce them here.
Thanks for reading, Mr. Procedure
