You could be a technical writing group manager, a project leader, or do
tech writing as a consultant. You could become a tools specialist at
your company, and maintain your format styles, SGML database, authoring
system installations, and so on. You could become a publishing system
integration expert, and put together complete publishing systems for
people. You could work in book sales, or publications marketing. You
could become a publications or text DB administrator, an electronic
production specialist who does layout and design, a compositor or
typesetting composition specialist.

You could start writing novels, too. 8-)

Len Olszewski My opinions; you go get your own.
