One of my close friends asked me how can she improve her writing skills. She's already is a good writer but she wants to improve her skills more. How can she do that? I told her she should start reading more books instead of watching TV all day, besides Tv doesn't most of the time it's full of junk. What are other way's of improving you're writing skills? If you think you're a great writer, can you share with us how you came to be as good of a writer as you are now?

For me, you can improve by both reading and writing. Practice writing too, as often as you can coz' it will develop your vocabulary and the right usage of grammar. Express yourself through writing if you want, like making a journal. Or, you can write some articles of your own, that way.. you can review if what you wrote is much better, if you're not yet satisfied, then I suggest you revise it ;)

The best way to improve your writing is to write. As the old saying goes, "Practice makes perfect". The more she practises, the better she will have a chance of becoming. Ask her to join myLot. Lots of opportunity to write here. :P
