Hi Everyone!

After doing keywords research, it's taking almost 6 hours to complete a 1500 words article. I would like to improve my English writing skill. It will help me to speed up writing + providing innovative ideas on my blog in few hours.

Please suggest me 3 books to read.

I will choose one which gets more votes in comments.

Thanks.

Im seeing at writing as programming, the more you write the better it gets. Read blogs about your niche, pickup vocabulary, not a writing style

I'd also advise you to grow your style with resources other than books about writing. From my personal experience, I found watching interviews and documentaries to supplement my style the most. Vocabulary also takes a pivotal role in your style. The type of words you are exposed to the most will inevitably lead you to express your thoughts in a certain manner. Maybe a literary one, maybe a practical and talkative one, maybe a scientific one. I watch tons of scientific content so I find myself talking about most things from a scientific standpoint. Growing one's intellect does wonders for written expression, both for writing simple product descriptions and professional heavy-terminology articles.
Writing is just communication, so write as you think, don't artificially shape it into something else, or someone else's way of doing things.
So in conclusion expanding your general knowledge together with vocabulary should do. I see you're from India. I'm also not native to an English speaking area, so while adjusting to writing exclusively in English I often found myself trying to replicate my own language in English, and that sometimes comes out sounding weird. If you could find a native English person to chat with online, preferably in voice chat even, you could pick up on the ways they think and learn to write more naturally to English readers. Watching professional journalistic content is a start too.

There's also a nice thread by @ContentExpert to expand your vocabulary in the lounge, check it out.
Good luck!
