How to learn writing if you don't have skills? At school and college we always have to write numerous of paper work, I hate it! I would rather talk for an hour or count difficult math formulas but please, don’t give to write anything. For me it’s the worst kind of studying. I have know idea even how to start

What do you mean? To order a work from online services? Oooh, I can't make it every time when I have to write something... unfortunately) But to have one or two that are already checked by someone would be good, just in case..Smile

@ Tawnya Bruton ,
No, you don't order a paper from someone else.

The best ways to learn to write come from reading and writing. You need practice, and you need to see how others write. I'm sure you are taking English classes in school. Ask if you're unsure of anything, or get a tutor, just like you would for any other class.

Read something you like.

One thing you might do for practice is to try re writing or outlining someone else's work. I often find myself doing this in my head.

I have the same problem with writing. I agree with the previous comments that we have to read more for making our writing better, but the thing is that I really read a lot, I like fiction literature and enjoy every single paper of a book, but about writing.. I cann't focus on grama and orthography during the reading, because I feel like I'm missing the idea, the spirit of a book by concentraiting my attention on rules.

I also think you should read more, with time you'll not even notice how it goes just from inside of you, just get inspiration

The best method to improve your writing skills is to read - as you read you pick up new vocabulary and engage with different writing styles.

@Laverna,
Lav, by the sheerest coin. my BH, also an avid reader, for which I envy her too, has a first name very like yours which of course hesitant to spell out; tho I am [email protected] and apparent don't care who else knows it

Needless to say she is inspired while there's some q in my case

By the way did "coin." stop you; many hate me for that sort of stuff but still I persist, in 17 years having saved some 2,456,788 keystrokes

Thank you Vern--and Janey too-- for the inspiration
