Practice Writing

From Stephen King's book, On Writing: As with all other aspects of the narrative art, you will improve with practice, but practice will never make you perfect. Why should it? What fun would that be? Practice the art, always reminding yourself that your job is to say what you see, and then to get on with your story. 

I really like the growth mindset implied here: you will never be perfect... which is what makes writing hard and also makes it fun!

Practice will never make you perfect. Why should it? What fun would that be? — Stephen King
