My experience has been if you want to always be writing
even as you rise, publications manager positions will fulfill
that. In every manager position I've held - including the
one where my prospective VP specifically told me that he
didn't think I'd be doing much hands-on writing - I've ended
up spending at least a third of my time doing hands-on
product documentation. As for where you go from there,
as long as the comp keeps up, I don't feel particularly driven
to keep on "advancing" to "bigger and better" things; they
usually come with additional stress all out of proportion with
their rewards.
