I’m trying to improve my writing and am curious of what websites there are to greatly improve my current skill. If there are any recommendations or any websites, then it would be fantastic.

Thank you.

    The best way to do anything is through practice. Check out Nanowrimo

    Here are a few more resources for you to check through:

    The absolutely must read - Elements of Style by William Strunk: http://www.bartleby.com/141/

    Then, it's also important to decide what type of writing you want to focus on. Web writing or technical writing or screenplays...I think you get my drift. Though the basics will be the same for all.

    Last but never the least - learn to proofread with patience. Most of us ignore this to our own peril.

    Best of luck.
