Writing tips

lettersWriting other than "just the facts" or about not technical topics is much more trouble for me than it should be.

For a relatively recent expatriate I get by okay in verbal conversations, but it's amazingly frustrating for me to write in English. I can't find the eloquent words, I struggle with grammer beyond the most basic. I am thankful for articles like Gar's Tips on Sucks-Less Writing. And of course for dictionary.com.

After not having written much Danish for almost 4 years, my Danish writing isn't much better. (Four years?! Wow! I had no idea it had been that long already).
