As you can imagine, I spend quite some time writing blog posts for my website and over the years I’ve become pretty good at it. Well, it’s not that I’m bragging about my writing skills, but the facts are speaking for themselves – I can write a 1600 word article in about two hours. Sure, I would have spent some time planning what to write about and editing and publishing it on my blog would also take some time.
Still the writing speed is the most notable improvement I’ve achieved when it comes to my English writing skills – compared to how I was writing 4 – 5 years ago – and I believe I could refer to it as “fluent English writing”.
What does it mean in real terms? Well, I think I wouldn’t be exaggerating by claiming I can write as fluently as I can speak; I can just start typing and keep at it until everything I’ve wanted to express has been typed into the word processing software.
And this is where we can start looking at the reason why so many foreign English speakers find it difficult to compose a coherent piece of writing. While writing an e-mail to an English speaking friend or a customer at work mightn’t be the biggest problem, bigger tasks such as writing formal letters, essays and short stories may present massive difficulties.
You may find yourself sitting in front of a monitor for half an hour having written just one or two sentences, and for some strange reason you just can’t overcome the so called ‘writer’s block’.

* How to keep distractions from preventing you focusing on your writing.
This is very important – and I have a first-hand experience in being constantly distracted by incoming e-mail, coffee breaks and my inability to resist checking news online while I’m writing. As you can imagine – it may potentially increase your writing time three-fold, not to mention the damage it does to your ability to focus and maintain a steady flow of words while writing. As I said – important stuff, and you’ll read more about it in Chapter 5 of the eBook.
But I’d better stop ranting, my fellow foreign English speakers! I’ll leave you alone to reading the eBook you just downloaded (or did you?) so that you can improve your English writing and take it to the next level!
