Thanks for this. I never met Prof. Watson but found his little book Writing Philosophy: a guide to professional writing and publishing enormously helpful when I was a graduate student. Among other things, he provides a paragraph by paragraph analysis and critique of one of his own published papers. He gives himself an A-minus/B-plus and concludes "It is a good paper, but it is very repetitive, and lacks careful consideration of the question of knowledge of general ideas as compared with knowledge of particular things." His personality shines throughout all his writing advice.
