I've been reading Peak by K Anders Ericsson - it is mainly about talent not being all it's cracked up to be and people who are not 'naturally gifted' can make a success of their chosen art, sport etc by the application of deliberate practice.
Those of you who are familiar with Deliberate Practice - a question. How would you apply deliberate practice to writing? What sort of exercises would you recommend? (Sorry 2 questions there, I lied!)
