If there's only one thing you ever take from this forum, let it be this. I'm living proof of how to get it wrong. Lack of technique presents a series of brick walls that slow down your progress & prevent you from expressing yourself. It takes so much longer to break down those walls than it ever will to prevent yourself building them in the first place. I suffered from a modest degree of early success, & that took my eye away from establishing the basics. I'm paying a big price for that now :(
A big welcome to the forum :)
