When we read, and find facts, and knowledge, we get more facts, and our knowledge is increased. When we listen to others, they share their experiences with us, and they teach the tips that they apply. When we get advice from experts, they correct our mistakes, and teach us to write in professional way. When we practice, our skill become sharpened.
