Software options proliferate extremely easily - too easily, in fact - because too many options create tools that can't ever be used intuitively.

No one can teach writing, but classes may stimulate the urge to write. If you are born a writer, you will inevitably and helplessly write. A born writer has self-knowledge. Read, read, read.
