Ok, this is a bit complicated.
So, I have been mistaken for not knowing any English every time I write. People who review them, some, would give up on the middle of my story every time. I am born in America and English is my first language. Everytime I try to improve in description simply, it makes readers confused.
Now, why should I continue writing if my grammar is off? It makes me feel bad a bit as I try my hardest and yet people still say it. But despite me trying to take their advice, how should I improve my grammar? I am a second year writer on the Internet as I try to work on it by myself.
I like to write just to convey my imaginations. I am inspired by many things as I try to create my own fan fics of different things consisting of that.

Well, if you want to improve on writing fanfiction, keep practicing, keep working and don't give up. By writing more and more, you'll gradually improve. When I started writing, I thought I'd never improve, but I kept on working and made some significant improvement. I'm still not satisfied, but there's significant improvement: both my description and grammar improved (and English is not my first language). Just writing and not giving up is the most important thing when you want to improve.But despite me trying to take their advice, how should I improve my grammar? I am a second year writer on the Internet as I try to work on it by myself.
It's not that your grammar is particularly bad, it's just that it's really... awkwardly worded. Like:
Everytime I try to improve in description simply, it makes readers confused.See how badly phrased these are? Try and read over what you write before posting it and see if it sounds all right. It sounds almost like you're trying to sound more intelligent but aren't able to word it properly. Continuous practice is the best thing to help you get better. The more you write the more constructive criticism you can get, and you'll find yourself improving naturally. There's no quick way to improve the way you write, practice is one of the few things. Reading more helps too, any English teacher can tell you that.But despite me trying to take their advice, how should I improve my grammar?
e: Actually, asking your teacher for help would probably be a good idea, they'd know your work best.

Yeah you are probably pretty big honestly.im almost 200lbs now.
You didn't lose 5 pounds in 3 days because of food related ventures. Your weight can shift 3-5 pounds give or take depending on what you wear, how much you have eaten recently, and your current bowel movement process.ive dropped 5lbs since thursday cause i havent been ABLE to eat.
They make low calorie substitutes for just about anything, I'd have to get a better idea about foods you like.any tips on GOOD food to eat? i dont want to eat what i dont like. plz help! good low cal food sugestions plz.
I find most of the time body weight is generally genetics. I eat four times the amount of my ex-girlfriend in calories and I only weigh about 125 (Underweight for a 21 year old obviously) and she is shorter than me and weights well over 200.
I'll give some advice that my friend told me. NEVER SNORT FUN DIP! Dumb huh? I didn't do it, but he had a bloody nose afterwords. In all truth, he says his friends dared him to. I asked them if that was true, and they said they told him not to. There's a little bedtime story for you, hope you enjoyed.

I weigh 195 and Im 6'1 1/2" Everything hurts you some way. Like fruits, they are mostly healthy, but the acids are terrible. My biology teacher told us some fruit that had a certain chemical in it that made you gain weight. Besides, you can eat bad if you exercise right. I know a guy that ate eggs, sausage, burgers, all this greasy stuff, mostly protein, but he worked out, and he was muscled up. Id just exercise

I was in those kind of situations when I was younger, but I know the reason of why. Since I was born, I had a problem with my pronunciation since I started to talk when I was 4 years. everytime that I talked, I pronounce the words bad, and my friends don't understand me so I was very timid in that time, but since by the time passes and gain maturity. I get better and finally I can interact with other people. But still I'm sometimes timid, mostly with girls on the same age as I'm.
If you still have doubts, I can help you in anytime

I need help. I befriended a girl at the beginning of the semester. She turned out really nice, giving me cookies before I went to my second class one day, and made plans with me on Valentine's Day. Since this Thursday, I was hoping to go meet her family today. However, whenever I texted her once on Friday and once today, me asking her about hanging out, she ignored me. I felt that I was my Asperger's Syndrome that kicked in where I am moving a bit too fast whenever I talked to her. I know that whenever something good happens to me such as doing something with a girl, I tend to tell about it like crazy and that's like a huge problem with me when it comes to being around girls. Would it be a good idea if I waited until Tuesday to talk to her? My dad told me that it will be a good idea if she brought up about what happened Saturday, along with her just being any ordinary girl. I am extremely worried that I might end a friendship by being this way where I am acting a bit too fast and begin to think that I am only good at screwing things up...

I'm so confused with life, right now. I'm 12 years old, but don't say I'm too young to be thinking about this. It's not easy to put in to words, so excuse me if it's hard to understand.
So, I've recently been thinking a lot about the future. Future job, future family, future house, everything. I'm scared to death, because I don't really know where I want to live, what job I want to do, or who I want to live with. I have plenty of time to think about all of this, but it's all I can think about. Every place I can think of living is not a place that I would like to live in and raise children in. Future job isn't as much of a worry, but I want to do something fun, that pays well, that allows me to spend time with my family. I want to be a good father, not an idiotic father like mine. Future partner, I can't stop thinking about this. I dislike almost every human being I've come across, and the chances of me finding someone decent makes me want to cry. I don't know what to do, and I know I have plenty of time to think about this, but I'm not sure if it'll be enough. I'm really scared of the future, right now.
Mine is an unchanging love, higher than the heights above, deeper than the depths beneath, free and faithful, strong as death.

And, look you, there is nothing in this thing of learning out of books. Here, here and here (pointing to his ear, his head and his heart) is your school. If everything is right there, then take your pen and down with it; afterward ask the opinion of a man who knows his business.

Well, it's really nice to see you thinking about your future life, but I would definitely suggest to enjoy your time as a child. You have 6 years left as one. You have to cherish that time. That does not mean to not think about your future though. You have plenty of time to think about this. But you need to go through this step-by-step. Start with the beginning/easiest things first.
I'm saying that it's not healthy to be thinking so far ahead of time, especially in terms of a future partner. Love will find you. You cannot find love. You're trying to get into thinking about something that you're not ready for. This also goes in regards to being a good future father. That's a lot to be thinking about and in this case, it's way too early to be thinking about yourself as a father. You don't even have a partner yet.
For your future house - What kind of environment do you like? How would your surroundings be in said environment? What kind of house would you want? What is your ideal environment? Look up some different countries/places on the internet that you'd like to visit, perhaps you'd like to live there.
Future job - What is your ideal job? What amount of money do you think is enough to get paid with? What do you find as 'fun'?
Just a few more things:
Considering you're 12 years old, and if you'd like to begin thinking about your future, I'd highly suggest to think about school. Everything that you want to do in school. Like, the classes you want to take and where you want to go to school.
And finally, I just have one more thing to say - Enjoy the little time you have as kid now, you only have 6 years left. Don't waste it, make the most out of it. After your 6 years are up, you'll be an adult. So cherish your time now as a kid. As some say - These are your Golden years.
If you have any other questions about this or anything else you'd like advice with, feel free to ask me. I'm more than happy to help~! ^_^
i agree with Gothic-Gothorita here. you are only a kid, stop worrying about adult things, they will most likely sort themselves out before you turn 20 (most people figure out a passion, a field they'd like to work, whether they want to travel, etc.). there's no use trying to plan your future at 12, because your interests and ideas will almost certainly change before you enter adulthood.
