Fire and Knowledge published a very thorough article about how to improve your writing. The article traverses industries, so whether you’re a novelist or a business analyst, there is some quality information to be gained from the article. The content is very detailed and provides many tips to help you improve your writing. Some of my favorites from the list:

Be yourself. Don’t alter your voice for a subject. Relax and write with confidence and in a way that comes easily and naturally. Sometimes this will mean discarding the first few paragraphs until you start writing naturally. “Never say anything in writing that you wouldn’t comfortably say in conversation.”

“Remember this: a well-written book with bad arguments will have more influence than a poorly-written book with endless nuance and lifeless prose. Remember this too: lifeless prose comes from lifeless minds.”
