"Go Software."
Technical Writer:
Follow the jobs and the money. For every programming language you can comprehend, add $10k to annual salary, as a tech writer. These really brilliant software engineers are creating these amazing pieces of software and churn out machine-generated documentation to accompany it. There are many other markets where a technical writer can be successful but you will continually find work if you specialize with software.
