If you just keep writing, will you get better? This is the topic of a recent post by Jane Friedman (, drawing from the informative book, Peak, by Anders Ericsson and Robert Pool.

Ms. Friedman explains the salient points of the book. If it enlightens and intrigues you as much as it did me, you might also want to head on over to Amazon for this excellent resource!
