I don't disagree with any of that, even if it does tend toward tautology.
What I have in mind, though, are the many people I've worked with over the
years who are so busy "writing well" that they forget to constantly ask why,
for what, and for whom. And they forget also to stop writing and go out
among their putative audience to discover what's working and what isn't.
