Sorry, but you can’t write like me

Most writers don’t know anything about teaching. Most writers will not be able to teach you anything. Many of them are honest enough to add disclaimers such as “this is not a writing manual, it’s just how I do things”. Some writers who are teaching writing aren’t that honest and sell their personal routines as manuals for others to follow. The funny thing about this is that I am not even sure if these writers know that they are being disingenuous.
