It is true, writing is a skill. But this is not something that you "either have or don't", despite what some people might think. True enough, some people might have a natural "flair" for it, but that's far from affirming that some people "simply don't have it". It's all about work and practice.
Perhaps this is something that you have heard before, but let me repeat it: Read, read, read... Read as much as you can, from newspapers to books, from funny cartoons to political analyses. The more your eyes and mind are exposed to texts, the easier it will become to express your own thoughts.
