Hi and welcome K_D
Just the old fashioned suggestions from me. Read a lot and write a lot. If you are comfortable with it ask for feedback from people who's opinion you respect.

Several people over the years have posted short pieces here for feedback especially if they are concerned about grammar. For example I have a suggestion about what you have written above (and I hope you want feedback.)

Because it is a question and not a statement replace "Anyone has...skills." with "Does anyone have good suggestions on how I could (or can) go about improving my writing skills?"

If this is the kind of feedback you want you might want to post in Q&A above where more people will see it.

Exactly as zed said..One of the best ways to enhance your vocabulary skills is to read more. Become a voracious reader by reading everything you can get your hands on. And then put them to use. The more you use them the faster you grasp. The most fun filled way to improve your vocabulary is to play word games. So You learn while you are playing.
