Writing is something that you can develop through practice: be prepared to think about how you approach it and when to try new ideas.
Remember that 'different things work for different people' and strategies that may have worked in the past may need refining for different circumstances (a new course at a new level of study).
You should also consider how your writing needs to meet the requirements of your 'audience' (readership) and your assessment marking criteria.
As writing is a form of communication, it has similarities and differences from other kinds of communication, such as everyday talking and making presentations.
It is helpful to think about how they are similar and different - you may be able to use other ways of communicating (e.g. talking about your ideas, or reading your written work out loud) to help your writing.
