Most engineers can master the basics of writing -- at least
well enough to provide useful input to technical writers.
Some engineers write very well.

Most technical writers can understand the details of the
operation and application of the products they write about
-- at least well enough to build a mental framework, research
the lacunae, and produce useful docs. Some writers have deep
technical understanding of what they write about.
