Why science writing?!
"Science rules!" -Bill Nye
Science is straight-up cool. And science writing lets me learn about all sorts of cool sciencey stuff and then tell other people about it. Possibly someday as a career.
So basically, science writing is writing about science, typically for a non-science audience (i.e. the general public.)
And that's my career goal in a nutshell.
Now You!What do you want to do with your writing?
