Can Writing Be Taught?

You might want to read this before responding to the question. Or not read it, just tell me what you feel about it.

 

I personally don’t think it can be taught. But it definitely can be learned with practice and time, and preferably without a single teacher. How much this particular belief of mine is going to continue to aid my inability to dish out viable reading material is anyone’s conjecture, but I am going to hold on to it with all of my life and the heavy breath that results from the endless bloody inertia.
