Zinsser says this because it is true. That's why we do these blogs. Writing more often helps writers to become more comfortable with their writing. It helps them to get to know their own style, and associated with the different tricks. It takes a while to break habits. I have a problem myself with commas. I add them where they are not needed becuase I used to leave them out when they were needed. I tried to break that habit with putting a comma in where ever I thought one might be needed. I am currently trying to break my habit of comma overusage, and I think I have become better about it. Writing more often makes your writing better. It's like the phrase practice makes perfect!
