You don't have to be good at it, but the more you write the better you will become. You also have to learn to accept constructive criticism and realize when what you have written should be scrapped or revised. But the key is to not give up. Writers write. It's as simple as that.

Please check out Episode 105 of the Darkness Dwells podcast.

Warning to readers: This is a photobook of the Tiger 1, not a history of its production and use in battle. I highly recommend this book for WWII aficionados, those fascinated by the Tiger (like me), and modelers.
