    Post Please Help! Where should I start?

    Hello Guys,

    I want a suggestion from you all. I worked for a private firm as a technical writer for three years. Currently, I am not working anymore due to my personal reasons.

    But, now I have the urge to do some creative and productive work. So, I plan to start up my career afresh as in writing articles or any type of contents for some or the other company.

    But, the problem is that though I know that I write very well, my English language is little weak. I cannot (at this moment) take any English classes, as I am busy in my household works. I want literally to improve my English so that I can write better articles. So, where should I start. If I write many articles on my own, then I won't be able to catch up where do I do mistake in my writing.

    Please guide me what should I do first, (option 1: start studying English grammar; option 2: write articles and check them by others; or option 3: whatever good suggestion you have).

    Thanks in advance

    I find your statement a bit contradictory.
    If you say you can write well, your English shouldn't be weak. Anyway, it is always a good idea to re-learn your English grammar. Getting it right is essential if you want to go far in writing. I find this forum especially useful for this purpose.
