Writing is one of those skills that is a bit challenging to learn. Some say that in order to write well, you should read a lot. There is truth to this as writing is largely influenced by what you read.
One practical way to improve your writing skills is to dissect those materials that are of interest to you. For example, if you are into literature and you read works by your favourite author, print out the material and highlight certain phrases, sentences, or paragraphs for close examination. Reflect on why you like these elements and how you can apply them to your own work. You may also analyze what makes the material so compelling by noticing certain techniques that can keep readers’ attention. Was there any humour, cultural references or controversial statements that can arouse interest? Perhaps you can use them in your own writing.
However, beware of plagiarism. It is one thing to be inspired and another to deliberately copy. While it is okay to imitate the writing style of your favourite author, it’s a completely different story when you copy his work and passing it off as your own. That is just blatant stealing.
While it is great to be inspired at first, eventually you can develop your own style and create your own voice in writing.
