Becoming A Better Writer

It was a dark and stormy night.

Err, no. One of the reasons for me starting this blog was to try and become a better writer. While I’m generally known as a good communicator, writing does not come easy for me. It always seems to take too much time to convey the message that I want to get across.

Maybe it was just the high school I attended, but my English classes mostly covered literature, with little focus on writing. I don’t feel like I ever learned how to write. For the longest time, I thought that the way to become a better writer was to read more – and while that is probably true, it’s high time that I started writing more.
