This works not only because of the ol' notion that you better by doing something over and over. Instead, a lot of writing is a numbers game. You have to try out a lot of versions of writing before you find the right one. There are few great writers. I'm not a great writer. But I'm a killer re-writer, and that takes less magic than just hard work. THAT is the difference between those who write professionally and those who wish they did.
