Research Writing Concept

A note to myself (after talking with Susan)

"Technical Writing is more like advertisements
It focuses on telling how it is great first, and why it is great."

"The process of explaining the story is the opposite of novels, or movies, or story telling.
Technical writings tell the end first, then explain why it ends the way it ends"

Comparing to "Lord of the Ring"
  Movie will start telling from who is Frodo, and building up why he needs to destroy the ring, facing many enemies while walking through the forest,... blah blah ... and finally showing he actually did it.

 On the other hand, technical writing is starting by telling "Frodo actually did destroy the ring, Yeah!!".... why he did that,.. who is he,...any alternative?... oh!  that's why he destroyed it.... the end.
