    It is not direct translation but i think most people prefer to say that like this:

    "Ukalalık yapmadan önce yazı yazmayı öğren."

    someone who acts smarter than he is = ukala

    Artistlik yapmadan önce yazı yazmayı öğren.

    "Artistlik" is similar to "ukalalık".

    İkinize de teşekkür ediyorum :)

    Ancak, anlamadığım bir şey var.

    Yazmak=to writte

    Ama 'yazı' ne demektir tam olarak?

    Yazı, yazılmış olan şeye denir. English might be "writing" referring to an essay for instance.

    There is a phrase for instance "yazı yazmak". It simply means to write.

    --Ne yapıyorsun?
    --Yazı yazıyorum.
