I don't know if the situation is the same everywhere. However, in my
area, it seems that the line between writers and editors are blurring.
People who have been around for a while can specialize, but people like
me, who are just breaking into the fields, seem to need to know how to
do a bit of everything. In fact, one of my pet theories is that you can
tell how long someone has been in the field by how specialized they are.
