Hi, If you feel it is very difficult then it means you know where you are right now. Don't be intimidated yet, because with the awareness that you feel difficult to write articles, you'll have to try harder. At least try to complete one article and let someone else review it for you. If the person corrects you, learn from your mistakes by applying it into the next article. Then give it to another person to be reviewed. This is the way in which you can improve your writing. I hope you'll succeed. Be patient, and work smart. Have a nice day!

Conversation or chatting condone language and errors. When you write to earn, correctness grammatically, idiomatically is also important. You have the passion-good. If you are good at conveying your thoughts during conversations, or have the talent to imbibe ideas from conversations, meetings etc. you can have lot of subjects to write about. In spite of all this, some in born flair is also needed to be a good writer. Not all are bestowed with that. Otherwise the world will be filled with writers and writers. You can cultivate this, no doubt. Still there will be difference - one born with the genius and one trained to be a genius. Keep trying-mylosha. You will succeed. Happy mylotting.

What kind of articles do you want to write? Do you want to write about a certain subject or a review? I'll give you some suggestions if I know what you want to write for.

A good writer takes time to perfect. You will never know until you try it. I have a blog on my profile that will give you some examples. You will never know if you like what you write until you get critiqued, so give it a try and you never know you may just be a great writer.

To become a successful, you have to be comfortable with the English language, so that you can easily joke in English, too! (makes your blog a lot interesting) :) Also, you need to learn the loops on attracting traffic into your site, build a following who literally hangs on your every word, so that comments run fast. Most importantly, your content should be interesting, entertaining, or extremely helpful. People always thinks, "What's in it for me?" so you should probably be able to answer that question with your blog. :)

I also have the same problem. Words i use are not really catchy to the readers so I am hesitant to write an article or something like that. Anyway, if you make a blog, I dont think its necessary to use flowery words as long as you are able to express what's in your mind then that is good enough.

First thing about writing online is to have prolific English vocabulary. Then you have to exceptionally good at constructing paragraphs and sentences. Finally would be to have a great deal of knowledge on the world wide web. That will surely get you started on your dream of becoming a good online writer. =)

Well, Here Are Some Tips, Freshen Up On Your Vocabulary, (So You Have More Technical Words) If Its An Artical Your Writing, Use As Much Detail As You Possibly Can, Create A Hook To Your Artical, (Create A Bold Into, ex. "Apple Has Just Encounted Thier Newest Fear". This Will Get The Readers Attention) Keep Off Topic Paragraphs To A Minumal, (Its A Good Thing To Go Off Topic, So The Reader Has More Detail About, For Example Product Compition. But Keep At A Min.) Do Not Use Any Personal Opinions, (Readers May Disagree, And Disconclude To Read.) And Finaly Give A Closing Paragraph That Analizes The Artical That Readers Have Reviewed. So If You Want To Make money Online By Publishing You artical, I Highly Recommend, "Amazon Kindle". You May Transfer The Writen Artical You Have Into A Kindle Format. Website Link: www.amazon.com/kdk You May signup or Format You Book For Free No Software Requiered To Download

I'm not sure cause I'm not a good writer myself but one thing I suggest is to write the thing you like and the way you express them must be clear and more direct to a point.

It takes time to improve qualities. Need a lot of practice and a lot of patient to keep on trying. I have the same dream as yours also. To become a writer and I hope that I can earn through my writing. I write poems this far. I never realized that poems will be my field also. But since I start writing online, my poems got good response from people. ^^

Give yourself practice drills everyday. It helps when you are always writing and tweaking your writing style to perfection. I strongly recommend that you use myLot as some kind of workspace. Twenty posts with a word count of about 100 per post should be a good start. If you are diligent in your practice, I'm sure that you'll be able to accumulate a lot of writing samples. Anyway, I'm reminded with what Sean Connery said as an award-winning writer in the movie, Finding Forrester. He said, "A writer should write. Thinking comes later." So, keep writing. And after writing a paragraph or two, keep writing some more.

If you wish to become a good writer, the first thing you have to learn is patience. Second is to practice. Try some free writing. Write anything that comes to your mind. Last is to generate ideas. Your ideas can be anything but the actual talent is the fact that what you write is the though that came into your mind that you KNOW everyone else will understand and enjoy.

I think reading more improves your vocabulary as well as your ideas of what good writing looks like, so start by reading more. If you want to write articles, read a lot of articles! Second of all, you need to practice a lot. Don't give up if you don't like what you see in the beginning, after a while you will see small signs of improvement, and then you will be encouraged to practice more. Becoming a good writer is a long process, so try to be patient and kind to yourself, and you should be fine!

I think that the number one quality that any writer needs to develop is the ability to be a self-starter. Too many would-be writers spend time looking for the perfect niche, or the perfect mix of keywords, or the perfect site to write for. In the meantime, they are accomplishing no actual writing, and their skill as a writer is not improving at all. Their income is also suffering. The way to become a good writer is by writing, and the only way you can accomplish that is by learning to self-start.
