After years of researching, I discovered that an interesting exercise was to write in my own words what I just read. Since most of it was very complicated (medical), putting it into a simple explanation proved one thing to me: Most of what we read can be distilled or ignored. Most information has an essential “nut.” Again, ignore the rest. This is also one of the best exercises for writing: What’s the easiest way to describe this? If only individuals and companies could do this (they can’t), so much time, energy and perspiration could be saved. Thanks for the post.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
