A writer of things is born

Do you ever wonder what type of person likes to sit down and write instruction manuals or encyclopedia type stuff?

Yeah, me neither, but it came to mind today when I was reading yet another instructional guide created by Winnie. We have, How to make a person (a drawn version, not a Frankenstien), How to draw a awt fit (that's; outfit), How to care for your Gunnie Pig, All about Chinchilas, tree Sloth, and on and on.

She even does computer research on the animals. She has loved doing this type of thing since she learned to write, but she has really stepped up production since she got her own stapler. "What can I staple? Hmmmm. I know! I'll make another manual!"

I knew you were a little off right from the start, lol.

So I guess the answer is, Geminis?

But I'm a gemini and I have never been compelled to write a manual.
Maybe the wrong twin got put in charge of writing -- the one who is interested in how things work is strictly a reader (and a skimmer of manuals at that!).

BTW- Winnie also writes award winning manuals -- it says so right on the front of one of them; "wan a metl" with an illustration of the medal.
