I love to write instructions for software applications. I love to write tutorials that go through a process that makes a task easier or automates it. I also love learning new things in the process of writing about them!
Sewing & Pattern Drafting
I know this is technically a hobby but for a while I did make a little bit of money drafting patterns and writing books on the topic. It is a very technical subject surprisingly and especially when you try to explain how to do something step by step. Teaching it is even more of a challenge when you do it over a chat room and the only way to share images is via email.
Ahhh teaching online in the days before YouTube or live streaming or teleconferencing… when it was all still the Jetsons and not real yet! Given the chance I’d still love to teach pattern drafting online only this time with more modern tools!
I enjoy setting up to do an event. A class to teach something, a gathering of friends or family or even as part of my job. Years ago I was an Events Coordinator and had a lot of fun setting up the advertising and marketing for various demonstrations of crafts, many of which I had never done. I coordinated week long summer camps for kid crafting as well.
Event coordination is just like project management and I enjoy that as well. Keeping track of tasks and details is a big part of what keeps me motivated and happy.
