When you write something in English, you should try to think in English from the beginning instead of making sentences in Japanese and translating them into English. This is what I've been told.
It is possible when I know exactly what I want to say.
But to start writing essays, which I haven't decided what to write, I found it too difficult.
I always feel that when I'm writing texts, my brain is thinking about what to say faster than my hand can write it down or type it in as actual sentences...even in Japanese. The problem is that my brain can only keep the idea just for a few seconds. In fact this is the reason why I always write and type so fast in such a messy way.
So it becomes harder when I have to catch the instant and temporary idea in my brain with my poor English. I wonder how people are tackling with this.
