On Writing. If you want to write well, you have to do two things. Read a lot and write a lot. There's no way around it. The photographic parallel is blatent - not just taking a lot of photos - and trying to finding the muse along the way. But also, looking at a lot of photos, not just your own, but looking at books of photography, finding what feeds your eye. Working at it is the only way forward, towards being productive and creative. Nobody is going to sprinkle pixie dust on your camera and have great pictures magically appear.
