I am writing a tutorial for a software product. I have written other
manuals and online documentation for the product, but this is the
first time I'm writing a tutorial.

My problem is that no one has given me any direction as to what the
tutorial should do. My initial impulse is to just to make up my own
sample project and walk users through creating that project using the
software. Of course, I won't be able to walk users through all the
features, so I'll probably just do those that are most commonly used.

Does anyone have any opinions or suggestions? If anyone knows of or
has written up a guide or plan for writing a tutorial, I will be very
grateful to find out.
