Secret No. 3: Keep Learning and Practicing 
Writing is a skill that you can learn. Good writing skill is not a natural gift. You were not born with it. You really have to learn to write well.
There are hundreds of books on all aspects of writing, from the nuts and bolts of grammar and punctuation, to writing in specific genres. You can also find advice from blogs and articles on the internet. However, the best way to learn is always to find a good teacher and learn from him/her.

Secret No. 1: Reading
One of the most common problems faced by Malaysian students when it comes to essay writing is lack of ideas. Normally, when teachers ask them to write an essay, they would respond like this; "I don't know what to write la teacher...no idea." Sounds familiar?
Well...is that true? It depends on what you have stored in your brain. Is it empty? Is it full of rubbish? Or, is it full of useful information?
Writing is about expressing your ideas in written form, on paper or online. To be able to write easily on a certain topic, we need to have enough information regarding that particular topic.
