I've got a note on my kitchen wall:
"By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest, second, by imitation, which is easiest, and third, by experience, which is the bitterest". Confucius.
I suspect these are the three methods by which I must learn to write. Reflection comes from the data and reading. I must imitate the best writers. The experience comes when no-one reads my writing. At least my supervisors read it, even if they say horrible things about it.
