Profound yet simple: The key to good writing

Images of activities in which practice is essential for progress.

Practice is as essential in writing as in any other hands-on activity.

Practice is as vital to a writer as to a sports player or craftsman.

Teach students to practice the craft of writing.

Coach them during their practice.

Let them see you practicing the craft yourself.

Praise disciplined effort.

Practice makes progress.

And ultimately, practice makes skill permanent.
