Typewriter - logo (color)Anne R. Allens Blog: Is Talent Overrated? 8 Things that are More Important than Talent for Writing Success.

While I disagree that skill overrides talent completely, I agree 100% that without skill all the talent in the world doesn’t mean anything.

I know a number of people with an amazing amount of talent but no skills. I also know people with little talent but with the prerequisite skill set. In either case though, there’s a certain amount of talent required. There are some people, who no matter how much they work and struggle and acquire skills will never get anywhere because there isn’t enough raw talent to push them into that realm.
