I need tips on improving my writing skills. (More below).

I have a habit of jumping from one scene to another at inappropriate times. I lose my patience and start to move straight to the exciting parts. Then my story ends up sounding strange. How can I keep my patience on the lead ups? I also have a bit of trouble describing a situation. I can describe scenery just fine, but when it comes to explaining something like a car crash, it becomes kind of bland. How can I get the reader to see what I see? Thanks!

Use the time between scenes to describe the effect of recent 'exciting' events on the characters (assuming that this is narrative writing)
Perhaps you could try elaboration, and force yourself to spend more time describing the parts you don't have trouble with, to build patience.
Another tip might be to write out the bare skeleton of your story first, possibly in point form, and then build the story from there. Good luck on whatever it is you're writing!
