You are forgetting that to achieve mastery in any field one must walk the path that everyone has walked before reaching uncharted territory.
Quite right. I remember in my freshman year at university, I took a creative writing course, which I was looking forward to because from various experience in high school, I fancied myself a good writer who might want to write fiction someday.
Suffice to say that I was pilloried by the professor for my style and structure. My ideas were fine, said he, but …… I really needed to figure out how to properly express them. My questions about famous writers who “broke all the rules” were put down with a simple “after you learn how to do it right, THEN you can take some liberties.”
He was white american, same as me.
