New Career Path

Since I have returned to school for my BA in English I have discovered I would like to enter the field of technical writing or other areas of the literary field. I am new to this and have been trying to locate decent information on how to intern at different companies and growing a portfolio that consists of items outside of my school work. Any suggestions? I have posted a few things on the book sites I belong to and am anxiously awaiting a response from some of the members there to hopefully offer proofreading services for a nominal fee, and other editing services would be available. Time will tell if that is a valid approach to building a decent and varied portfolio. :)

Well so much for an active blog

Well I thought I could keep up with an online blog but no such luck so far. I am working on two short stories in between the mountains of homework I have and studying for finals. I have been considering some type of random inspiration from others around the country but havne't figured out a good way to develop that thought process. I thoguht it would be neat to randomly leave my blogsite or a PO Box (if I had one of those) in different places around the country and having people mail me a letter or a postcard to talk about random things.... whatever comes to mind. Could be interesting... maybe I will have to look into a PO box cost and do that for a fun fall project. Hmmm...to be continued.
