Acquire the skills to build a strategy for deciding which journal to target, identify that journal's requirements and paper structures, write a message that sums up your findings / ideas, use your message and the journal's structure to decide what needs to go into the paper, write quickly, and edit with confidence, and create a clear and simple covering letter / note.
