i guess one can never learn the "writing art". one can get influenced by reading a lot. and if you are a writer from then it would probably push you into writing.
well to quote Charles Bukowski (one of my gods), "He asked, "What makes a man a writer?" "Well," I said, "it's simple. You either get it down on paper, or jump off a bridge."
and then to quote him again, "Writing is something that you don't know how to do. You sit down and it's something that happens, or it may not happen. So, how can you teach anybody how to write? It's beyond me, because you yourself don't even know if you're going to be able to.”
