Re Exercises: When a kid, I could not comprehend the grammar of English. The rules were useless for me. So, I copied sentences that I liked or looked different over and over and that taught me to write. I taught grammar among other aspects of English for forty years, and at this point have happily lost all memory of how it works. I should add, the same is true for writing poetry, which didn't happen until I was over sixty. Writing pastiches of canonical poems was and still is one of my exercises.

Ego sum id quod sum imitantur.

Imitantur ergo sum ego.
