Old but Gold

This is a link to my favorite blog post:

The Craft so Long to Lerne.

Written in 2011 by John E. McIntyre, copyeditor of the Baltimore Sun, it’s old by internet standards. In keeping with the oldie theme, its title is a centuries-old quote and it ends with timeless advice.

Unfortunately, as the post’s title suggests, reducing Mr. McIntyre’s advice to practice requires nothing less than the labor of a lifetime. But this laboriousness is entirely expected: since language is at the very core of our intellect, mastering writing is arguably one of the highest intellectual mountains one could climb.
