What does it mean to write well? How does a writer get good?
Are some born with innate talent? Maybe.
Is that all there is to writing? Absolutely not.
Most good writing, I’ve found, is a result of practice (and a lot of rewriting). I like what author of the book Cold Tangerines, Shauna Niequist, says in this blog post about the discipline of writing. I couldn’t have said it better myself.
