Hi Claudia,

 

I’m not a professor nor a teacher, just a regular English student. I’m also trying to improve all my English skills. If you know by now which area
you need to work on just get some books (writing related) and go from there.

 

The way I see, writing has more to do with vocabulary, usage, style and planning. Many people try to start writing with no planning at all.
Usually before I start writing I spend a good time on the topic itself and how I will convey the idea. Most of the time, I just play it save, with short
sentences. Again, it has to do with your own style. Hence, is also important to know to whom you are writing for. For example, some people like beautiful words (which some of them are more common in writing than speaking). As I said, I like to play it save and ask myself at all times, “Am I answering the question here?”

 

 

Keep it up,

 

 

 

Sid.
