Dear Michael,

Thank you for your question!

In my opinion to be a better storyteller you should write every day, and read as much as you can. Improving your grammar is hard, my best advice is to really study the sentence structure of authors that you like, and really think about what makes them work structurally.

Thanks again,
Lauren(less)
