This is a link to my favorite blog post:
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.
