I have one more question, we are using Grammarly, an online tool to check for
Plagiarism Detection, spell checking and so on, I am wondering what is the percentage that would be consider ideal, for a decent writing, i am hovering around 50% and it keeps saying, weak, needs improvement, that's not encouraging for me, sadly

If you are selling your work, then it should be 100%.
Grammarly checks your grammar, but it doesn't teach you grammar. If you are getting around 50% a lot, then I suggest you enroll in a grammar class.
Pasting your post into Grammarly got 25%! I highly recommend a grammar class. This is what it is "encouraging" you to do.

At least Grammarly sais: "The text in this document is original". That`s great heads up!

Even though your content is unique, it will not make sense if the grammar is incorrect.
So strive for 100% accuracy
Grammarly is a great tool to help you write amazing content!!

No it's not. It's a moderately useful tool for spotting obvious grammatical errors. But even if your grammar is perfect, it won't help you write "amazing" content. It won't even help you write interesting or useful content. The ony tool for that is the one between your ears.

So true and to add, if you were to run a paragraph from Mark Twain through any spell/grammar checker the errors it would pick up would be flabbergasting! Good writing is not cut and dried based on rules alone. It's knowing how to use the written word to speak to your audience in their language.
