    .
    A really general question, Naniel, which deserves a really general answer: the way to improve one's writing is to write-- and have it critiqued by a better writer.

    There are also plenty of writing textbooks available. I happen to use Study Writing, by Hamp-Lyons and Heasley (Cambridge), but it is a rather old one, and I think you could find something better in, say, a campus bookstore.

    You should write something every day, even if it's just a sentence or two sometimes. Keeping a personal journal is a good way to get in the habit of jotting down something daily.
