There are courses available to learn copywriting and other "business writing" so don't just restrict you educational pursuits to the software world.>>

In addition to these areas, consider learning the Business itself. With a combination of communication/writing skills, knowledge of software development, and a good grasp of any given business, a technical writer could transition over to be a *great* Business Analyst.

And based on the work I am doing right now, it's kinda... fun!

Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own.
