I've learned a few things over the course of this last issue but one that sticks out is that I have to work a lot harder at this writing/reporting thing if I'm to be any good at it. And I mean real hard work and practice. There is a reason why the phrases "practice makes perfect" and "experience teaches wisdom" make complete and total sense to me. Like anything in life that's worth doing, you have to put in your time. You're not going to just be better by osmosis, you've got to work at it. And that's difficult but who ever said it would be easy?
