David Eddings also gave the "million words" advice, in the form "Write a million words. Now burn them." He said his first novel was so bad even he couldn't read it. But he was eventually a #1 best-selling author.

From what I know, police are not supposed to shoot in a one-on-one situation until the other person gets within 21 feet--7 yards or approximately 4 body lengths. If Brown was killed at over 50 yards--7 times that distance--then logically either Wilson was not following procedure, or it wasn't a one-on-one situation, or he shot because Brown was committing violence against someone else. It must have been a one-on-one because Brown is the only person Wilson fired on. By Wilson's own testimony, the worst Brown was doing when Wilson showed up was jay-walking, hardly a violent crime. Therefore, Wilson didn't follow procedure.
