Paul -

How about medical or other scientific writing? I have written in a
variety of fields also, and still do computer documentation, but find I'm
most successful (financially and its fun!) as a medical writer. I do a
lot of training programs (paper and computer based) for pharmaceutical
and biotech companies, as well as articles for medical publications, FDA
documantation, etc. Of course, I have a medical background, but I know
several writers without medical (or any kind of science) backgrounds who
are successful in this field. If your interested, yuou could check out
the American Medical Writers Association - its a great group for
networking and education in this area. Email me if you'd like more info.
