If I write on average, 500-1000 words a day, and read at least an hour every day, for six years, will my writing not be shit? Is writing ability something born out of passion and dedication or is it natural talent?

It's easy to write 1000 words a day if you don't mind writing 90% shitty things.

If you're trying to create quality work, writing 1000 words a day that you can be proud of yourself for writing them is an herculean task.

basically it takes like ten thousand hours of actual practice and 20000 hours of reading oh and if you quit doing it for a period of time you get worse
