White Paper Writing

The author of one of the blogs I read faithfully is making a wonderful offer I can't pass up, especially since a trip across the country is out of my budget = (

But I can let you know about a pretty cool opportunity and get a very cool reference for myself.

As you know I am stretching my writing skills by learning both technical and medical writing.

Simultaneously.

So far so good.

I *also* have an interest in writing a related product called a white paper. I have looked over the 'net, and settled on Michael Stelzner as an excellent resource. I read his blog,

( http://www.writingwhitepapers.com/blog/ )

and I get his e-zine, and have the RSS feed on my igoogle home page. Pretty good stuff here. He has written white papers for some of the biggest companies--FedEX, Microsoft, Motorola, Monster, Hewlett-Packard. He has written a lot of them as well; over 100.

You can see why he got my vote.

He is putting together and in-person seminar in my old home town of San Diego, California
{ insert sad sigh here}.


Here is the scoop:

I wish I could go. I miss San Diego, and this looks like it will be an awesome Seminar!

[Pause]

Or would that be paws?

I am neglecting my blog, I know. However, it is for a good reason. I am on deadline. How cool is that?

I am also taking two courses right now; one on technical writing, and one on medical writing. They both are online. The tech writing class is from my alma mater of Kennesaw State University in collaboration with ed2go.com. http://tinyurl.com/2o4quk

I have been in class a couple weeks thus far and have learned a great deal.

The medical writing class is also online. it is produced and distributed by Diego Pineda @ http://www.becomingamedicalwriter.com/ .

He also has a blog @ http://medicalwriter.blogspot.com/

And no, I have NO affilliation, nor have recieved any compensation from either. I paid full fees, just like anyone else; I am just passing on information.

I have just received the package and will be starting tomorrow, so I will report back soon.

I will diligently report back, promise!

(Of course, my oldest child insists on getting me the T-shirt that says "No one reads my blog!")
