No one has to read this, its just me pitching a bitch.
I took an assignment to write a product monograph and user's guide for a new ostomy device about a month ago. I said it would probably take six weeks to complete. The monograph was easy just cut and dry. The stuff you send to a physician or medical supply house.
The instructions I received for the user's guide were to use fourth grade language, no complex sentences, and to try and keep it (their word) LITE."
So for about ten days now I'm going back and forth between the ostomy thingy, and some other stuff I'm writing. So far I'm up to "before beginning to apply the (thingy, confidentially agreement prohibits me from mention the product by name) it is recommended the deodorant spray be used to cover and foul odor...blah, blah, blah.
Here I am stuck. I just can't find the words, to make the fact that customer will be shitting in a bag for the rest of their life...LITE. I know I will find the words. The closer to the deadline the better my writing becomes.
