In the summer of 2003, I took a class in technical writing fom the University of Colorado in Denver. Although I had worked as a technical writer for several years by that point, it was my first formal course in the subject.
The main project for the class was a formal report. I chose a feasibility study. Having recently been laid off, I was considering a career as a freelance writer, and wanted to know (1) if I could make a living at it, and (2) what projects would be best to work on. My feasibility study compared several types of writing projects, and came to an interesting, but not surprising, conclusion: I should work full-time as a technical writer, and write fiction and non-fiction books on the side.
