sorry for the long question but thanks to all that responed
You need top-notch writing skills. That means being able to write grammatically correct English in the appropriate style and tone. You should be able to do this without having to consult reference books (grammar, punctuation, etc.) with any regularity. Spelling, punctuation, syntax - all should be flawless. One of the best ways to learn this is to read, read, read and write, write, write.
