My degree is in fiction writing, and I'm a veteran of the brutal
workshop style classes that tear your work to shreds before your eyes,
while you must sit close-mouthed and graciously accept the criticism.
Lots of fun! I've published some short stories, and have always been
working on a book or seven, as well as scripts and what not. My creative
side usually comes out in the marketing writing that I do in additional
to technical communication. When prospective TechComm clients/employers
see my fiction degree, they wonder, so I explain that it is very helpful
when writing about products in development.
