I Want to Improve My Writing Skills

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 587 People

    When I am trying to write,

    it makes me appreciate my English teachers all the more. I should have paid more attention. Adverbs and prepositions, pronouns and conjunctions: what a mess I was. Working with a tutor helped, though I was the guy who always wanted to be outside playing ball and not stuck in...

    No Passion

    Without passion, heart, and soul writing is nothing more than words on a blank screen. No feeling, no meaning, and no thought to be understood.  I have lost the spark.

    So Many Started

    Hi All,I have been writing since I was old enough to hold a pencil instead of a rattle. I have always loved to read and as I got older I just wanted to write a novel. I write poetry, articles, essays, just about anything that had to do with words. I even write Haiku. The one...

    and I need some readers to let me know if what I've got so far is moving in the right direction. Comment or shoot me a message if you're up for reading a "hot off the presses", Craig Newman original.

    Fifty Shades Of English

    Death And Bridges

    Micheal closed his eyes took a deep breath, and jumped. He wasn't afraid of falling, he was only afraid of what would happen next. What if this didn't work? He didn't want to live the rest of his life in a hospital bed. He knew it was stupid to kill himself over simple problems...

    I think the best way to improve your writing

    skills is to read. Read as many books as possible and you will notice your mind is able to put things into words in new and interesting ways. The more literary influences you have, the more interesting your writing will be. I've noticed this is true of myself anyway.

    Can anyone help me with writing?

    Writing a story is overwhelming. I get caught up in details and pacing and transitions. How do you do it? I really feel like I have stories to tell, and I've been told I'm a good writer but when it comes to writing a story, I choke. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

    My Throat Ties Knots Around Itself And I Can't Say A Word.

    When I speak of something important, every sound trips over itself until my sentences turn into a blended mass of sharp, confused, jutting, distressed syllables. Equally, when I write, my fingers just stumble around, feeling keys and paper and pen for some hint of the right words...
