    Just write what your heart feels and proofread later.

        Re: Writing tips

        start with a mind map. Most people can't think of a poem or essay off the top of their heads, they'd start by thinking of key words or phrases that they want to convey, so write those key words and phrases down and then build on them.

          Read more often.
          Explore how other authors play with ideas and themes.
          Each a different style.

          Also speak more often.
          If it's easier try dictating your ideas as a recording.
          Then play back and select the good ones via pen and paper.

          Practice makes perfect, so keep at it.

                      Like another user mentioned, reading as a 'hobby' is crucial in developing a flair in your writing. Be it essays, fictional pieces, poetry etc. That'll greatly help in widening vocabulary.

                      For academia, you'll need to structure your essay prior to actually writing it up i.e. a very detailed plan of what pertinent points you want to cover. It doesn't need to be elaborate, just the main points (with any quotes/ citations as relevant). The conclusion needs to be as strong as the introduction- usually a broad overview summing it up with a slant towards whichever opinion you feel more strongly inclined to (without saying the word 'I'- replace with 'it could be suggested', 'it may be inferred'; if you actually have scholarly quotes to back up those points, that'll help to round it up nicely).

                      For leisurely pursuits, I recommend keeping a daily journal (Penzu is a secure online journal site that can be utilised, especially if you can't keep a physical journal around for privacy reasons). Just mind dump in there regularly, and you'll find as you continue typing, you'll develop your own style and flair.

                          Nah your ok.
                          It'll benefit you from where you are right now so crack on with it.
                          About time you read Charlotte's Web anyway.
                          Try a variety of genres (fiction, biographies, science fiction, humour etc) and different formats (books, magazines, comics) too in order to get a feel for all the styles out there and their differences of expression.
                          Just make a start and keep at it, things will improve.

                              There are many benefits of reading fiction. It gives you access to other cultures and lives in a way that allows you to experience it rather than simply reading about the facts. This, in turn, can develop your ability to empathise and interact positively with others. It can also allow you to consider ideas from a different perspective and/or process them effectively. It can also be therapeutic. That's without the benefit already mentioned of improving your writing.
