My previous post notwithstanding, I learn by seeing/watching. Show me how to do it, then I mimic. I can’t say I’m very original. I’m not. The ideas don’t just flow… that’s gotta be forced, I have to do exercises and stuff. It’s all phariseeical, because…rules. You gotta have rules. Er, *I* gotta have rules. You do what you want.
Which of course leads to the dilemma: There’s all sorts of rules for writing, but some of them are contradictory. Who do you listen to?
