Excellence in academic writing

Post by Dexif »

Hi guys! How are my chances to improve my writing skills when I'm a total newbie?

I need to submit a personal statement soon, but I have no idea how to write it...

UPD: Well, I hoped to find someone here, but I again have to rely on myself only. It seems that I found a really good guide, but I see I need too much time to practice my writing...

Writing is a creative process in itself, no matter what topic you're working on. Writing and reading are connected. If you're thinking about how to improve your writing skills, you should read a lot more books. I love to read and when I have free time I read books, it's a great way to spend time in a useful way. Despite the fact that I read a lot, I find it very difficult to put my thoughts in writing. It is very difficult for me to write an essay or a paper. It is easier for me to find someone to write a paper for me. I have tried many times to do it myself, but I do not succeed.

As a learner myself, I don't think I can offer you any valuable advice. But one thing is for sure, writing skills can only be improved through writing.
How about writing a short essay, telling us what you do in your everyday life?
It may sound easy, but it is not so to catch the heart of the reader.
So, what are you waiting for?

Hey, Dexif!
I have no doubt that this is possible)
I understand you like no one else, especially when it was time to write an essay, I ran into this {-:
I found different works, essays, abstracts, documents, compared them, compiled and based on them I wrote my own.
I think you can do the same with personal statement :prof:

There are different writing guides, but from my experience can say that the best thing for improving writing is practice. The more you write - the better you write
