How do I become a better writer? I feel like I need help in all areas.

Any resources or advice?

Read a fuck ton and your writing quality will improve.

As for writing good content, you need feedback.

My favorite author current "beta-tests" all his books, people give him feedback if certain plot points feel too long, dull, or overly complex.

Read good quality books.

A lot of the problem can stem from lack of inspiration. There are a lot of sites (reddit etc) that have areas full of writing prompts that can help inspire you.

>become better writer by reading more

Wrong. You become a good writer when you can properly express whatever situation or setting you are trying to convey. Therefore, go out into the world and try to experience your subject matter firsthand, in order to properly express the dramas, dangers, and places you want to describe

...By reading more you can see different writing styles, expose yourself to more expressions and learn more words and see good deliveries and punchlines.

It's pretty much a fact that reading will improve your writing skills. Is it enough? Maybe not, but to flat out say it doesn't help is ignorant at best and idiotic at worst.
