The place to talk about the craft of writing.
I have conjectured similarly that some talents and skills come from being immersed in the subject. If a person has the opportunity to devote most of their time to a subject, it makes sense to me that they will excel in the subject as opposed to someone who only occasionally ventures there.
I agree with you on that. It took me a long time to develop my writing skills and I myself believe I still got a way to go after 10+ years
I am the poet of the body and I am the poet of the Soul. The pleasures of heaven are with me and the pains of hell are with me. The first I graft and increase upon myself, the latter I translate into a new tongue.
