There was a time when "learning to write well" was what we did during Grades 1-12. I don't know how everyone else remembers that part of their lives, but I would definitely describe mine as "long and intensive."

Learning how to write well doesn't require "long and intensive academic preparation"? Were you born an excellent writer? Regardless, notice the caveat in the definition: "often."
