It takes practice to become a better writer, and you're already doing it. No, seriously—you're a prolific writer. Even if you don't consider yourself a writer, you probably put your thoughts into text more often than you realise. At the very least, you send emails (a lot of them), post on social media, update your résumé and LinkedIn profile, and message your friends. If your job requires it, you must also create reports, presentations, newsletters, and so on.

How to improve your writing skills?

 Learning a variety of writing tricks isn't as difficult as you might think. We've compiled a list of steps to help you make significant improvements to the quality of your writing in a short period of time.

  • Make sure you’re clear on the concepts you’re writing about.

              The foremost thing is that you must be able to explain what you are writing. If you are writing for a specific result then ask yourself what should be the result.                Before you start writing, you must be clear what you are writing about.

  • If the message is complex, outline it.

              The average text message doesn't require much thought-organization, but if you're writing something more complex, with multiple angles, questions, or                requests, get all of that sorted before you sit down to write. Making an outline, or even just quick notes about the topics you want to cover, can save you                time later when answering clarifying questions.


So you've started writing. To improve your writing, simply become aware of the things you can do to give your text more structure and make your copy crisp and readable in a conversational style.
