Johanna Rothman, also known as the Pragmatic Manager, has been a software developer, a business management consultant, and award-wining author for decades. With 19 books and thousands of articles, blog posts, reports, and more to her name, it's fairly safe to say she knows a thing or two about writing. And in her latest book, Free Your Inner Nonfiction Writer, she shares that knowledge with the world to make it easier for anyone to be a success at writing.
We recently sat down with Johanna to discuss identifying outdated rules, targeting your ideal audience, filling your idea bank, and striking while the iron's hot. Along the way, Johanna taught us how writing prose can be a lot like developing software, and she offered up tips and insights for communicating ideas that we think any programmer will want to hear.
