“Live long and prosper” was easy for Captain Spock, but as a non-Vulcan, you have limited control over your longevity. Besides, the Vulcan salute is really hard. One thing you can control is your writing! As a scientist, technical writing skills are vital at any career stage and polishing those skills will heighten the level of your work.
