Keep a Journal
Improve your writing skills by keeping a physical journal or online blog (and share with your friends)... the trick is to write a little every day, even if it is not perfect. You can write about a special topic (ex. cooking or sports), or reviews on restaurants, books, or movies. There are many blogging sites to choose from:
- Tumblr for short texts with pictures. BUT your friends cannot comment.
- Blogger for short to longer texts with pictures.
- Twitter for very short texts and conversations.
