Harvey Jordan is <<...curious to know: what is the difference
between "technical writing" and "technical editing"?>>

About $10K per year? <g> Actually, the difference is as simple as
you probably expected it to be: the writers create what the editors

writers often end up editing their own work or that of others, so the
categories blur somewhat.
