#26: Writing tips on the internet

As medical writers, we need to constantly practice and sharpen our writing skills to able us communicate more effectively with our readers.

Besides referring to writing guidebooks, reading up some good articles produced from good writers and learn from them definitely helps us to write better.

Well, you may also conveniently find some good general writing tips on the internet, such as from the Daily Writing Tips. Sometimes we do need to refresh our 'memory' on the proper application of even the simplest grammar and punctuation, or learn the 101 rules for writing numbers. Believe it or not, numbers and numerals can be very confusing if not written in the right way.

If you are also keen to learn about fiction writing and business writing, then do drop by Daily Writing Tips to see what they have to offer. :)

#25: Besides being where I am now

Since it is still the first week of 2008, let's put the seemingly never-ending projects aside for the time being and talk about something more inspiring. ;)

What are the career prospects of a medical writer when he or she no longer wishes to work in a medical communications company?

Well, pharmaceutical companies and research organizations need medical writers. The type of writing needed in those institutions may be very different from what you are doing right now, but you will be able to adjust your writing style once you have undergone some training and practice.

Being a freelance medical writer is also an option. As a freelance writer, you can offer custom research papers writing or custom essay writing services to individuals such as medical researchers or even college students. Don't be surprise that there is a great demand for such services.

Of course, it is up to your own deliberation whether you should take on this type of projects. Are you willing to help a college student to write custom essays that are part of his semester assignment? ;)
