Been there done that now what?

I've been a tech writer for more than 10 years, and frankly, I'm
getting tired of it. The vast majority of my work has been in
software, mostly mini- and micro-based. I'm curious to hear if
others have made a successful transition to some other work.

I'm not interested in management-type things; I have enough trouble
keeping my house in order without worrying about someone else's. I
also don't think that a purely technical job would be my cup of tea.

I've thought about multimedia development; it seems to be an area
that's becoming more and more established in the mainstream. I've
also thought about being the guy between the users and the
programmers. I speak techie well enough and have been a frustrated
user enough to perhaps be of value in this sort of job.

Oh, and I'm not a real IBM person; I'm here on contract, so talking
to them about moving around is not an option.

Any thoughts?

P.S. Apologies for the overuse of the vertical pronoun.
