Take your time, no one will put a stop watch on you.

As for the tech writing, Don't let that worry you. I have a number of decades in tech writing and am still in that industy, didn't discover fiction writing till a few years back. Yes, there were things to unlearn, but not that many. I found my tech writing skills very helpful in writing fiction, not just in the grammar/technical areas but also with respect to description and conveying information.

And I've also found my tech writing has improved as I increase my fiction writing skllls.

So don't go unlearning too much.
