To any of my fellow writers:
Here are three things you can do while to help hone your writing skills in other areas:
1. Use proper punctuation while texting. Instead of typing "hey dude whats up," type "Hey dude, what's up?" (Easy)
2. Stop using abbreviations such as "lol," "tbh," "smh," etc. Get your point across with full words and sentences. (a little harder)
3. Turn off auto-correct. This will force you to manually change typos and add your own apostrophes. (Hardest, which isn't saying much)
I do all three of these and I have noticed a significant improvement in my writing since I started.
