Writing does not come easily to all of us. Some content writers are not accustomed to writing long, but can manage short texts easily. However, content writers have to be flexible because it is part of their work. There may be the need for someone to help them learn how to handle lengthy content writing.

Do not rely solely on spell-check, because you cannot improve them. Do not try to write fancy sentences, because your grammar comes in and holds you back. Grammar is hard to correct, so take the simple way.
Then, you need to practice writing. Not writing on the computer but writing the old-school way using a pencil and a paper. Take an hour out of your busy life and write short stories and then re-read them and edit them. This might be a difficult task, but definitely worth the effort.
Lastly, it is very essential for you to read. Read good books, articles, and blogs in order to write better. Reading improves your article writing skills greatly as you learn new words and their application in sentences.
Other than that, you need to get out there and let your environment sink in. Learn from the movies you watch, concentrate on your conversations and interact with people in English all the time.
