I wish I could write better

Meh. My blog entries aren't interesting...well some are but most aren't. Or maybe they're just badly written. I wish I had that gift, to write beautiful stories without thinking about it and going through countless drafts. As in naturally write it. Not really thinking about it but you just tell the story in such a way that it captivates the audience and whatever. Not as in a regular sentence with fancy words inserted in it. Something natural, the flow of the sentences and paragraphs and stuff... I can't explain it well but hopefully you get what I mean. It's like you just write. Just write. Anything beautifully written, whether it's a random post, blog entry or even an actual book...really it's awesome. I don't think I have that natural talent...even though my dream is becoming an author. Well, even if it isn't a natural talent you can still try it out and hone your skills. Sometimes when I see someone post a story on Facebook or whatever when I read it I think...maybe they're better at writing than I am. They just write it...from their heart and the message goes out into the world. (Spelling and grammar on the other hand...) But really whenever I write from my heart it turns into a...well, there's nothing else for it, an incoherent mess. Badly organized. Like some sentences are inserted in the middle when they're supposed to go at the end, or a sentence inserted in the end that was supposed to go at the start. ...and random sentences that just contain random thoughts. Maybe my train of thought got derailed. I really hope to enhance my writing skills. You can suggest ways of improvement in the comments of whatever. Don't worry, I accept constructive criticism. I'm not the kind who says "Don't worry I accept constructive criticism" then expect you to say nice things about my work and get defensive when you say not-so-nice things, I actually mean it. Just don't be rude about it and tell me exactly what's wrong with my writing so I won't make the same mistake. It took me months to realize the run-on sentences problem (which might not have been sorted out yet, I might still be writing with run-on sentences without knowing it) Oh, well. Thanks for reading this... I gotta go study for my exams tomorrow. Oh glob...Ibong Adarna...

    Start using paragraphs more and ellipsis less. It makes it easier for a reader to read. If you want to be a writer, go for it, and you should start by writing everyday, reading everyday, learning everyday. And don't give up.

    Ellipsis is the "..." right? Ok, thanks I'll keep that in mind

    Yeah that's right, it makes the reader pause in a sentence and isn't good for demonstrating a coherent thought.

    Also random tip, try end your pages on a finished sentence, that way people start each new page with a new sentence. This method is usually used in boring business reports, so they'll try keep investors interested. But whatever works for you.

    Third thing, use ellipsis when the narrative calls for it, like when a character is really pausing in thought, but I'm sure you know that.

    Read a lot. That would be my advice. And write like what you see when you read.

    ^ thanks for all the advice, guys (including all future comments if there are any) Well, gotta go study for a bit...yeah Social Studies and Filipino exams tomorrow, yesterday was Literature and Grammar. You know, I think I might get a low score in Literature, which is ironically what I'm supposed to specialize in as a writer
