“Learning to write sound, interesting, sometimes elegant  prose is the work of a lifetime. The only way I know to do it  is to read a vast deal of the best writing available, prose  and poetry, with keen attention, and find a way to make  use of this reading in one's own writing. The first step is to  become a slow reader . . . . Most people ask three  questions of what they read: (1) What is being said? (2)  Does it interest me? (3) Is it well constructed? Writers also  ask these questions, but two others along with them: (4)  How did the author achieve the effects he has? And (5)  What can I steal, properly camouflaged of course, from the  best of what I am reading for my own writing? This can  slow things down a good bit.”       --Joseph Epstein, “Heavy Sentences”
