    I would suggest reading hubpages articles that guide you and tell you what things to keep in mind while writing. Just search. I'm sure if you read few, you'll learn lots of new stuff. And then..just keep practicing.
    Good luck.

    First, you need to start writing. Pick a subject or topic you are interested in even if you don´t know much about it. You will learn a lot doing so but remember, it does not mean you should involve yourself with nuclear physics or sth :-) Your next step is to do research, read, choose the most relevant information to make a base for your writing and then just write. If you are an expert in a certain field, even better, share your knowledge in your articles. Help yourself with other hubbers´ hubs on writing - I am sure you will find them very useful. If you cannot learn from your own experience because you lack some, then learn from the experience of others. Do not forget to enjoy on the way :-) Welcome to Hubpages!

    Most writers struggle. Even if they're good, they struggle. Because most writers do everything wrong. You don't want to be "most writers.But many people have great ideas and want to write about them. Most people never will. Some will get off to a big, exciting start and then will quit midway. Only a few will see their writing dreams fulfilled in the end.

    Sure writing takes creativity, imagination and talent. And it also takes determination. But it takes something else that often gets overlooked "writing technique"

    Write about everething you want. Dont put chains on your imagination it knows what to do. You just follow it.  I for example get inspired by everything around me. Muse is everywhere. When you have idea strart writhing. Write until you finish work. I do so because  the muse is capricious. But this is my way. Record any ideas you have in notebook for later use. If you must do some reaserch. And that's all. And as BeBrown says "Practice, Practice and more practice.".

    Write in a diary every night. Just about the stuff that happened that day. If you are a guy, (girls can do this too, though) get a blog of your own and just write about your day or your feelings about something. Then you will become better at writing! The second thing to do is to write alot on HubPages. Pick a topic that you are smart at. For instance, your profile picture is a puppy dog. Do you know alot about puppy dogs? Anything helps, and the more knowledge and experience you have at it, the better your work, or hub, will be! Keep trying and you'll get it! It only takes practice.

    The best writers are also voracious readers.  Whatever type of writing you want to do, read, read and read some more of that same type.

    I went to a writer's convention years ago. One of the writers said to find a book you really like, then type out the first 25 pages of the book word for word. It is supposed to give you the feel of language as used by professional writers. It is also supposed to help you understand punctuation and grammer better.

    Of course, you can't use the pages you copy for anything but learning, but it is a good exercise.
