Before we continue, in accordance with the United Federation of Planets Rules of Engagement, I am required to disclose that I am a convicted WordSmith, a hard core Interdisciplinarian and a habitual user of Metaphors.  Which you are now in with me.
Based on having served 30 years hard-labor in business and management consulting,
5 years researching and writing a series of successful novels [over 100,000 copies sold,
based on royalties received], followed by a 15 year long interdisciplinary study of the 'unconscious' [mind], 'creativity' and the 'physics of writing' (while also serving as college
faculty), I am convinced that you -- that we all -- unconsciously know how to write. 
And I believe you can write far better than you may think or may have been told
otherwise by well meaning, but 'misguided' and 'misinformed', instructors  promoting
failed 'modern methods of instruction', Albert Einstein warned can 'strangle' our 'holy
curiosity of inquiry'. Which Einstein believed 'aside from stimulation, stands mainly in
need of freedom'. For without the freedom to read across the disciplines, to explore, know
and dream, our natural innate creative potential will 'go to wreck and ruin without fail'. 
These failed 'modern methods of instruction' are promoted by HIVE-MINDED DRONES, BORG, who are programmed to INDOCTRINATE you and ASSIMILATE you into their mind numbing COMPOSITION COLLECTIVE. And if you dare to question them or resist them, they will TERMINATE you, instead of engaging you and empowering you to learn how to write ... 'writing per se'.
