Keep All of your Writing in One Place

Buy a notebook or journal or start an electronic journal. By keeping your writing all in the same place, you will be able to see how much you are improving and keep it organized.

Practice Writing in English Daily

The importance of writing daily is that you start to create a new habit. Writing every day in English will soon become natural and something you look forward to. You will not see a significant improvement if you are not dedicated to becoming a better writer in English. You cannot create awesome stories and papers if you never try.

Read More

Always remember, reading is the best way to enhance your writing. When you read different books by different authors, you’ll get to know the usage of the same English language in different ways. One might write the same topic in a humorous way and the other might include a suspense in it. So the more you read, the better the chances of improving your writing. I strongly suggest you to read books that use typical and complex language. It’s an awesome way to have a knowledge on the usage of language.

Write More than One Draft

Draft means a preliminary version of piece of writing. Sometimes, your best writing becomes better after you take a break and work on a second or third draft. When you revise (or rewrite) your work you are often able to get your message across more clearly. You make think of things that you did not think to write in the first draft and you can add it in a later draft.

Use Online Resources to Correct your Grammar

Yes, grammar is a pain. You don’t need to know everything about English grammar. Use online resources, such as Grammarly, GrammarCheck or GrammarBook.com to help you answer a grammar question when it comes up. You could also switch the spell and grammar check on MS Word, your iPad or Google Doc to check your spelling and grammar in English.

Have a Friend Edit Your Writing

Have a friend that knows English correct or edit your work. Having another person read your work helps generate more ideas to better your writing. You could have them edit everything or just a part that you are stuck on. Often having another set of eyes look at your writing helps find mistakes that you have overlooked.

  1. Hi Debrapan,
    You have done amazing job Dude, All the points you have mentioned in the post is important to learn expert writing.

  2. I agree with writing more than one draft. I often find my writings editable after not being familiarized with the posts for some time which is why I often write my thoughts and ideas at a journal or Word processor so that I can remember to edit it when I come up when other new ideas related to them.

  3. I had a coach and he gave this tip of re-reading your article at least 10 times. So that's what I've been doing. It helps me streamline the outline and edit out any grammatical errors. Sometimes, I still would miss an error, but luckily Wordpress allows for edits. =) Reading more is also important. It not only gives us an insight into how others approach a certain topic but also helps with personal development. It helps to give us new ideas on certain topics. And you can also use it to quote other's wisdom, insights and advice.

  4. Interesting points. True, the more we read the more our command on the language increases!
