practice, practice, practice.

A great line from the BBC drama "Waking the Dead."

"Practice, practice, practice. Nothing else works."

This is true for writing, filmmaking, yoga, teaching, relationships... nearly any meaningful accomplishment. A flash of genius is great for getting the initial idea, for seeing a direction. But only practice develops competence. Or, as someone once said, "A professional is just an amateur who didn't quit."
