I am a 21 year old college student who likes to write. I write for myself and like to write down ideas/observations/thoughts about things that I think of during the day. I like traveling and working on my own. I am in my third year of community college and have taken general education classes and have changed my major several times. What kind of careers can I find that involve being on my own and writing?
Have an Answer?
Ever consider a career in technical writing? What I love the most about my job is that it s never the same. For the most part I work for the defense industry writing technical manuals on how to use various military technologies. One minute I could be writing a manual for a cargo plane, the next for a tactical fighter, or the next an unmanned aerial vehicle (or UAV, you can check it out on this link: http://www.insitu.com/systems/scaneagle ). The subjects of the manuals are always changing and are very exciting to work with, but for the most part it dealt with maintenance. I would have to write manuals on how to remove and install parts and components, maintain, inspect, or operate the product. The demand for writers in this field is great.
