You don’t have to be a journalist, feature writer, novelist, blogger or social media expert to write everyday. Though everyone always says that each person has a novel in them.
Writing can be as simple as putting your thoughts down in a journal or writing your short and long term goals. It can be writing those characters that you’ve had stewing around in your head. It can be writing a business idea that you’ve always dreamt of doing and maybe one day will become fruition. Writing is extremely personal and gratifying. Professional writers give a piece of their soul every time they publish a piece, but that doesn’t mean everyone has to.
It’s A Way to Keep Track of Your Goals
Writing a goal journal is simple. Get a book and write down what you want to accomplish. Putting those things on paper allows you to start making them real and tangible.
You can also start writing ways you want to accomplish those things, such as short term skill building if you’re looking to change careers. Maybe taking a course or two. Writing it down is a way to actually make yourself do it.
You can Release your Creativity
Always thought you could come up with ideas as great as JK Rowling or Tolkien? Start writing and don’t stop. The first things you write might be terrible but you don’t have to show it to anyone. Writing is a skill and practice makes perfect.
Writing is a release from the everyday, a way to journey to the lands inside your brain that you daydream about. Nothing beats creating a new world on paper.
It’s a Way to Voice Your Expert Knowledge
Everyone is an expert on something and if you write it people will read it. So go for it! Write what you know, and you never know who might read it.
