Interview Question

Senior Technical Writer Interview Reston, VA

How many words are in a good sentence? This was asked by an

  absolute idiot who was rude. This is also incorrect and she insisted this was correct, despite having never been a writer professionally in her life (her admission). Oh well, just remember the answer I guess.

What a stupid question. It all depends on your audience and the type of material you are writing. Stating 12 words as an absolute is laughable. There are other more important things to ask a tech writer. I should know, 25 years in the business.
