I agree with Oliver. My main learning steps (so far) were approximately

writing macros |
saving them    |  ~ nine months (also learned bash)
tweaking them  |
importing Lisp snippets  |
tweaking them            | ~ eight months (bash use peaks)
writing basic defuns     |
learning some Lisp concepts              |
writing somewhat more complicated defuns | ~ six months (little bash)

Only after quite a while of writing basic defuns did I ever do
anything that might be considered to be more complicated. Also, only
after that did I begin to understand how to use built-in Emacs
functionality at all well.
