So I realized while I love biology and I enjoy learning about God’s creation, I thought there was a better way than scientific research. Science writing, essentially a form of journalism, has many attributes that make it a suitable career idea for me.
- Not only is my writing ìmpressive, but I have a keen ability to communicate heavy scientific information into plain English.
- I am a lifelong learner, which is a trait valuable in science writing because every article may warrant new concepts and vocabulary to be learned.
- Since I’m already a blogger, and journalism seems destined for cyberspace, I’m well prepared technologically. Books are another avenue for communication, which are a great method after years of investigation.
When I harmonize these three talents, science writing seems quite nifty. And scientists (to whom I would leave the research to) are supplying new information to write on, so this is quite an exciting plan! One exciting element of science writing is that the news is always new; stories are hardly ever reported twice.
Hopefully, if I feel disposed toward such, maybe this very blog will gradually lean in a scientific direction! In any case, let my written word flourish in explaining our beautiful world’s legion phenomena!
