Get a piece of paper and practice spelling. At least practice for 1 week or so. Then on the next week, write a word over and over again. Try to write it good. Then when you think you are good at it then stop.
Something I got into when I first started reading (which was quite a long time ago) was to underline a word I didn't know if it was my book, or write down the word if it wasn't my book. Later on I would look up the meaning, origin, etc., of said word. This helped me learn my vast vocabulary. Also, if you're looking into writing, reading is the best way to get better at it. Unless you mean how well your handwriting is, in that case just take your time while writing and you'll get better and faster.
Best way to learn to write is to read. Professionally written books, articles, etc...all are good. Pick a topic that interests you and start reading about it. (And keep a good dictionary handy, just in case.) It'll not only make you a better writer by giving you a feel for how the language works, but it'll do wonders for your vocabulary, too.
Make sure to study frequently and practice spelling by for example: doing mock spelling bees with your family, asking your parents to call out your spelling words and you write them and have them grade it like a mock test, sound out the words, and for writing, try to practice writing things neater and holding your pencil in a way that isn't uncomfortable. (: Hope this helps! (:
Write a lot. It doesn't particular matter what you write and where you write. I write for some websites, but mostly I write nonsense for myself. If you use a computer I'd suggest a correction program, they don't always automatically correct your mistakes, but there'll be red lines under, but don't ignore them, make an effort to use the program to correct them. If you can't figure how it's written, find the word. If you don't use a computer, keep writing and ask someone you trust to look over some of your work and underline the words you spelled wrong. Learning to write good or properly isn't done in a few days. And, unlike what most teachers will have us believe, getting criticized for every little word doesn't always help.
It seems simple and dumb but just read. Read all different types of books often. Read advanced books and study difficult words in them. trust me, simply reading will make u so much more intelligent and a great speller.

I struggled with the same issue. In fact, I still struggle with spelling. I can say for a fact that reading helped me. Try reading books a little bit above your reading level. This will challenge your brain and improve your skills. Also, when you come a crossed a word you are not familiar with, look it up in a dictionary. It's always a good idea to have one near by so that you can do this as well as spellcheck your own work. There are dictionary apps that you can download to your phone or other devices. I hope this helps. best of luck to you. :)

You can improve your handwriting by beginning to write well and take your time with writing. Soon, you can write neatly and quickly. That's how I learned to write neatly. You can get better in spelling by looking up a word and seeing how to spell it. You will begin to learn how to correctly spell a word and after a few tries, you will have the word memorized correctly.
Everything takes time. The words you arent good at spelling I'd write over and over again. And writing comes with time write a rough draft first before the actual essay or whatever it is you are working on it always helps to have the steps down on paper first rather than just write and not know what you are talking about.
