Resources for inspiration and guidance on how to be a good science writer

A recent post on The Contemplative Mammoth on common writing mistakes new scientists make is a good read for students and the advisors trying to guide them.

Books by Dr. Josh Schimel “Writing Science” (also a great blog devoted to the topic) and Dr. Stephen Heard “The Scientist’s Guide to Writing
