How do I become a better writer. Well if you have trouble writing or want to become a better more creative writer these tips should help you. 1 try and write something every day even if it is 1 paragraph long. 2 use grammar and spell check even tho you may re read your stuff it is good to have an extra pair of eyes on your work. 3 find a picture one day and describe it in many different ways or find an article and just write about it. 4 use a THESAURUS I can't stress how important using a THESAURUS is from using it to make your writing more interesting or using it because you used the same word over and over again. Plus if you are using Microsoft Word you already have one in your Word processor. 5 read other peoples writing to see how they write or even finding someone else's writing on websites such as Chris Pirillos blog or even Gizmodo will help with your writing. If you have any other tips please feel free to post below.

How do I become a better writer? By not imitating you it would appear! Physician, heal thyself!

"USE a Thesaurus I can't stress how important USING a Thesaurus is from USING it to make your writing more interesting or USING it because you USED the same word over and over again", is an absolute classic!!!!

Using a thesaurus doesn't make you a good writer.

Reading does.

To become a better write just read other peoples work and just write what you know.

No you are wrong using a thesaurus can make your writing more sophisticated. Also I have several family members who are writing books and blogs that use thesaurus...

And no using a application does not make you a better writer. It may help your grammar but the choice of words and they way u use them is all up to you.

@bobpopo23 Why ask the question if you seem to think you know all the answers?

well that is what you use also what you write in I have found helps in writing like using Microsoft word instead of word pad.

Also Nitrocrime I never said an application can improve you writing THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SPELL CHECK AND GRAMMAR THAN A PROGRAM!
