Write what? It's unclear what you're asking us. What do you mean by 'in a better way"?

Are you referring to the writing process itself, to improved grammar, to stylistic changes, or what?

I'm afraid neither of those sentences makes sense.

We can't help you with your project, but we can answer your questions. (Please keep your posts brief and to the point. Don't ramble!)

As for improving your writing, I have two suggestions. One, read some things written by good writers. Two, practice, practice, practice!

One more thing. Always listen to my advice. 😀

I think perhaps you mean "Can you tell me how to thank someone for helping me with a project?"

Sure Tarheel!!

You are absolutely right!

Since this was my first post I was quite excited and just mention half of the things in the subject line.

Sure! i will follow the same you have mentioned above which call "PPP" formula :)

and this was a good one.. "One more thing. Always listen to my advice.

Sure, Tarheel! (One exclamation mark suffices.)

You are absolutely right! Since this was my first post, I was quite excited and just I mentioned only half of the things in the subject line.

Correct, Emsr2d2. :)

Note my corrections and comments above.

I'm on the lookout for the new information on how to write better all the time, and most resources state that practice is a key. I also concluded that to write better one needs to read more literature.

Say:

I'm on the lookout for new information .... (No 'the")

I don't think you will find anything new about that. There are some writing tips you can find online (or here on this forum). In addition to that, keep in mind what words are for. What do I mean by that? Remember that all modifiers are relative. For example, if I say somebody is a big man I mean he is big compared to other men. If I use an adjective that refers to an intrinsic property of the thing being described I have said nothing. (You never see "wet water" anywhere.) If you add a word to a sentence it should provide information that didn't exist otherwise. That word should tell me something I didn't know otherwise.

I didn't write the last paragraph. So how did it get in the quote box? As for plagiarism, I wouldn't worry about that unless there's a chance you will use a significant portion of somebody else's writing without knowing you have done so. If you quote somebody, acknowledge the author. If you want to use several paragraphs of somebody's writing, be sure to get permission from the author.

@emsr2d2 There was a paragraph about plagiarism in the quoted material. I didn't write anything about plagiarism in that post.
😐

Fair enough. As you say, there is now no sign of that extra paragraph in the quote box. I can only assume it was an error on Moveholir's part (perhaps they accidentally pasted someone else's post onto the end of your quote) and that they have now removed it. There's no edit history for post #13 so it's impossible to know if/when someone edited it.

Not a teacher

I advise you to write essays. Lots of essays. On all kinds of topics. Handwrite them.
