I never thought of myself as a science writer. A technical writer, yes.
Science writer, no. I was looking around the Web for something else, but
I found definitions that seem to blend technical and science writing.

We have a difficult enough time deciding what technical writing is all
about, but here's more to throw into the mix. I came across the term
"computer science writing"
( which seems to
describe what I'm doing now in updating a user guide.

I also found a PDF
800100) saying science writers "provide technical writing for industry."

Color me confused. Maybe I'm both and don't know it. Opinions, anyone?
