In case you all missed it, for the past three months now, I have been a full time writer and blogger at Science News, where I run the science education blog Eureka! Lab, and of course, Scicurious. It is, without a doubt, a fantastic life. I'm learning so much as a writer, and I hope that I'm making a difference as I go!
But of course, things happen in the meantime. Personal things. And so my editors have said I can continue here, dropping personal posts from time to time, to talk particularly about my transition away from academia and to life as a science writer. I'm very pleased to be able to do that. It is a difficult transition to make, and I want others out there making it to know...you are not alone in leaving academia. And you are not a failure.
And of course there are other things as well. I have a harebrained new project! For those of you who are interested, see my next post. For those who aren't, well I completely understand. 🙂
