4: Make it a habit to write every day. Practice, as the adage goes, makes perfect. So the only way to get better at writing is to keep doing it. Even 5 or 10 minutes a day, done every day, can significantly enhance your written English. Of course, you don't have to limit yourself to just one piece of writing. Combine several topics that interest you. The more you write, the faster you will improve.
There are many ways you can structure a daily writing practice. You can write for a specific length of time, such as 20 minutes; you can write as much as you want within that period but must stop before you run out of space (or words), or else your article won't be finished; you can even write for multiple periods if you want to practice different styles of writing. The only rule is that you must write every day to reap the benefits.
It's up to you how you structure your daily writing practice. Some people prefer to start off by writing for a few minutes and then expand their pieces over time while others like to start off with a large project and work on it until it's complete. Either way, setting aside some time each day where you simply focus on writing is very important.
Of course, you don't need to write for 20 minutes every day. If you can't fit in a full hour, that's okay too.
Write as much as you can, as prolifically as you can, and as consistently as you can. In reality, constant writing may do you harm and prevent you from progressing. You see, you're not learning anything—you're simply doing what you've always done. You form harmful habits that are difficult to break. However, if you were to stop writing for a few months, then start again later, you would be able to progress faster.
The more you write, the better you get at writing. So, don't worry about how many words you write or how long it takes you to write them. Just write, write, write!
However, you should still try to learn something from each story you write. This will help you improve as a writer and make those difficult decisions about what elements of your story to cut out so that you have enough time to finish it.
Also, consider publishing small stories here and there. It doesn't matter what type of story they are; historical, fantasy, sci-fi, etc. As long as they're interesting, try to write one a week and two weeks later you'll have a book/series ready for publication!
Last, but not least, never stop learning! Read books, take classes, talk to authors about their process... There are so many ways to develop as a writer and we should all be exploring them all!
