How do I improve my prose, /lit/? Should I study English grammar? Are there books on the subject? Or should I just bee myself?

It's kind of a vague question. If you mean just "better prose" generally, there's really nothing more specific than read more to study how other authors use prose style to influence the story, and write more to naturally let yourself get accustumed to your own unique style. If you mean, how do I write more clearly and correctly, I guess you can get a book like The Elements of Style which is very helpful.

I'll try to be more precise. My prose is atrocious, it's very "journalistic". It doesn't have any flow to it, and I have trouble with things such as pacing, stylistic figures, etc.

Perhaps reading poetry would help?
