Improve Your Writing Skills
Like reading, writing is something you learn over time. Here are some suggestions that can help you improve some aspects of your writing right away:
- Always organize your ideas before you start writing anything. For example, once you identify the keywords in your assignments, organize your writing around them. This way you will be sure to address them in your writing. This works for anything you write: short emails, short answers, longer paragraphs, essays, and so on.
- Work from simple to complex sentences. When you start by writing very complex, convoluted sentences, sometimes you end up with difficult-to-read, unclear sentences.
Fixing them at that point can be difficult. To make it easier for you and to write better sentences, start out by writing simple sentences, focusing on the ideas. You can then combine into more complex sentences.
