Do you guys know of any websites or free e-books on improving writing skills?
Look at your local Jr. College. Books don't cut it IMO. Something else you cna do is read books written by great authors.
There are hundreds of books written just for this purpose, I would personally recommend On Writing Well: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction by William Zinsser and Save the Cat, by Blake Snyder, these are really catchy and helpful books. I would say reading in general favors writing skills development. You enrich your vocabulary, find new words and word combinations, acquire writer's intuition and good taste. Other writers can both inspire and motivate you, that's a well known fact. Talking about useful tools, I think plagiarism checkers might become rather to the point, here's a non commercial review on the best ones https://plagtools.com/ .
