How do I become a better writefag? I make /tg/ style quests sometimes (not on 4chan) but I always end up getting people angry due to how shitty I write.

Have you tried copying another person's writing style that you like. And then slowly introduce your own ideas

Maybe take a class at a community college or something. Or at least get some books on the subject.

correction: post what you write online for criticism.

You don't need to get criticized for stuff you've read, that would be retarded.

You need to greatly expand your tastes as far as what you read/watch, most likely. When I say that, I mean you need to read and absorb quality writing from multiple genres. If your primary source of inspiration is anime or something, that's not going to cut it -- not because anime is naturally bad, but because it will make your writing and ideas flat and one-dimensional if you only read/watch things from one genre or medium. Read Shakespeare, read poetry, read fables, read comics, read Mark twain; just read more stuff.

Aside from that, it just takes time, and a lot of crashing and burning to become a good writer. Be patient and make an active effort to improve.There's no magic formula -- it takes work and more work.
