Don't think you can write? You may be surprised
Have you always wanted to write, but think you lack the skills and creativity, then think again. Here are some tips to improve your writing skills for the better.

1. Don't be afraid of criticism. Show your work to friends and family, and don't be disheartened if you have areas to improve upon. They should make your more determined to succeed.

2. Read! It may sound obvious, but reading different essays, articles, poems and stories will really help expand your knowledge of different writing styles.

3. Aim to take ten minutes of every day to add to your work. Even if it's a little bit of editing, or adding a sentence or two, you can build on your project every day.

4. Make notes, wherever you are. Post-Its, the note section on your smartphone, and even the back of your hand are great places to scribble quick bursts of inspiration.

Even the smallest notes can help boost creativity.
