Long ago, I determined to write at least three papers a year. I didn't always achieve that, some years more, some years there were none - but I kept it up. Now at the end of my career I have a cv with just under 200 papers. More importantly, I now have an extensive network of colleagues across many disciplines.

Write the paper. Wait for 1-2 days to forget it. Come back and reread it, usually I have something to add. After a few cycles, I think my writing is good enough and ask feedback from others.
