Right now, I work in MarCom writing, and I've edited a few
of our product end-user manuals.
Portfolio Problems:
1. Nothing looks very flashy.
2. the longest documents I've written have been newsletters.

I'm mainly concerned about the latter. I have no time to volunteer my
writing skills for work manuals, because we always do everything at the
last minute. I would have no time to research the things I needed.

I seem unable to come up with some cool projects on my own that I could do
in my leisure. I need something real to document. Does anyone have
any ideas on what I might do that would give me a nice, solid example
of my ability to write a longer manual? I thought that taking a course
might be a good idea, but I've heard mixed comments about such courses.
