While I was at Bowling Green, the best fiction student to come through in
years flabergasted the whole acclaimed Creative Writing department by
transferring midway to the acclaimed Technical Communication dept, with the
reasoning that he thought he would be infinitely more employable with that
degree than an MFA and he could always write fiction with or without it. I,
on the other hand, took the standard route through the program yet also
flabergasted the whole department by insisting that I did not intend to
pursue a teaching career but to return to my previous, totally unrelated
field. The path of my career wound 'round, and I ended up in the world of
tech writing. The funny thing is that from his annual holiday letter, it
sounds as though my good friend and classmate is not nearly as content,
challenged, gratified, or well paid by his career as I! The moral to the
story may be Follow your heart, and your wallet will be content :)
