Let’s be honest; writing is probably not a skill you can boast about. You probably haven’t written a best-seller yet, and you haven’t won a Nobel Prize in literature. Well, don’t get desperate. You won’t believe how many good writers haven’t done it, either. You are reading this article because you want to learn how to write better, and that is already a good sign.
So, you need to write an article. Have you selected a topic yet? Sometimes your teacher will assign you a topic, but if you have an opportunity to select one yourself, you should definitely do so. You can write about something you are good at or interested in or perhaps something you wanted to learn about but don’t have the time.
Before you begin writing, you might develop a plan. Careful planning helps you work more productively, gives you a better idea of how much time you should spend on writing every day, and also helps you to understand what needs to be accomplished and in what order. First of all, ask yourself whether you know enough to write on topic you have chosen. If not, conduct some preliminary research. Read a book or a magazine, ask a person who is knowledgeable about it, or just research it on the Internet.
