To get good at writing, one has to write. A lot. In prose writing, there's an old saw that you don't really start getting there as a writer until you've written a million words... (That's, like, 12 medium length novels.)

That, of course, is hardly written in stone, but the point is that you learn a new skill by plunging in and doing it. And then doing it some more.

The time for refining things and laboriously rewriting may well be farther down the road for you, when you are more sure of yourself as a writer.
