50. You do a lot of writing, so you're not as bad off as you might think. Try reading a short passage of

something that is motivating enough for you, but a little difficult, and then writing down exactly what the author said, but in your own words. You could approach it word by word, substituting your own word(s) for each word in the original and don't be too fussy about getting it exactly right. Just translate or paraphrase as best you can.

Thinking of example of what someone is saying is also helpful. Again, don't worry about whether it's right or not (yet) the important thing is to do it.
