Imitating the Masters

Tim Ferris came on the latest Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Tim Ferris talked about he being a non-fiction writer read extensively about how to write fiction. It is an interesting preposition. It made me wonder if you could learn by imitating and following masters of your field. Everything that we perceive in our day to day lives are connected to each other. One thing is extension of other. Nothing is uniquely authentic. Everything is know in relation of other. Good fragrance can only be smelled in contrast of bad fragrance. Beauty can only be perceived in ugliness. So, that makes sense. I also remember reading somewhere on Internet that writers have a strong comprehension abilities. Writers add this unique quality to their reading habit that makes them more aware of writing itself.
