Writing well is a skill. You can develop it. Here are three simple things you can to if you want to write better.

Engage with the world. Read a lot. Talk with people. Engagement with people and ideas gives you the fertile ground where great writing can grow.

Write a lot. You have to write, there’s no other way to learn. The more you write, the faster you can learn, but there’s a catch.

Work on the craft. Quantity alone won’t make you better. Writing is a craft. Learn to edit and revise. Learn to develop ideas into written pieces. Critique your work, maybe engage a coach, and put effort into writing better.

Writing well is a skill. You can master it with concentrated effort and time
