My writing is not as good as the other member

I feel I am not good at writing a discussion and at responding to discussion of a friend. I am trying to find a topic through a search on mylot. I think this way I can improve the quality of my discussion. However, I feel that my writing and responding are not as good as the others. I am envious to see and read the writings of other members. I always try to find a way to discussion in which I wrote more creative and better. Do you ever feel the same way with what I feel ?

I feel the same way before my friend, when I was just starting. I have lots of mistake with grammar, punctuation and all that so what I did was to read their responses, discussions and little by little I inherit the way the other responsers are doing. I also read articles, newspapers, blogs and I even read grammar books. I never stop reading, taking down notes, I study myself and ask help to those who are good in writing. I do not want to feel sorry for myself because there are bigger room for improvement and I know I can be one of the best writer in the future. I admit I feel envious, but the problem regarding this one have solution so I better focus myself to find solution, to find help, because there are people willing to help me and some of my friends like my initiative to find solution to this so they support me. It is normal to feel envious or inferior whenever you read something that you seem perfect in grammar, but you can do something about it. You can study for yourself, apply what you learn, ask someone to edit your work, someone good at this area and little by little you will learn from it. I am not good at it, I humbly admit it but I never stop reading and learning from the best mentors out there who are my friends.

You know what I admire your concern about yourself so I replied on your discussion to make you realize that you can be the best that you want to be. People like you that are curious are the ones who are assessing themselves of what they had accomplishment and need to polish. Since you made an inititive about this discussion, why not starts now and never stop learning from everyone. Accept the help and ask help, there are people that will help you, regardless if they help you with all their might and or help you when they have time because people even friends can do it to you, but never stop accepting help and ask for help. You can read grammar books, you can try to test yourself by taking online free grammar test just to assess yourself and focus on your weakness. I believe you can do it my friend.

I am really not good in grammar also, that's why I respond really slow to read and read again and again my response first. I also use the preview response before I hit the button of post response. And while writing this response I edited this in 20 times

In the world of education, it's never too late to learn. I thought your English writing skill was very good and I really and completely understood what you wrote. Good Job my friend and keep it up. Thank you

I'm pretty flattered, mylotting could help you develop your English skills. Just read what you write first and ask yourself if you could understand what you write. I am always looking for a wrong grammar on my sentences whenever I read it.

Ya i too feel the same. But after i started discussions in mylot i improved a lot. I can say this by comparing my 1st discussion to my last. When i started mylot i started discussions to make money. But now i am more interested in improving my writing.

Hi anusha I was very sorry for late reply. I started a lot of discussion until I forgot your responses. I would love to write you back. Your English is good too. I thought that my English advancement went good afterward since I actively wrote discussion and made responses from mylot. Thank you and have a nice day.
