If you have a skill, hold onto it as hard as you can and keep practicing until you are a master, Writing is no exception. Writing daily is like exercising. It works muscles you didn’t know you had, and the techniques need to be switched up frequently to avoid getting stale. Here are 2 great benefits of carving out time each day to write.
2 Benefits of Daily Writing
1. Feel More Confident
Daily writing can help make you smarter and more confident. Writing and stringing together words in a unique pattern is a skill, and art and a struggle. Triumphing at the end of a tough writing task makes you proud and confident in your abilities.
2. Feel the Power of Creation
Creating something and having your name attached to it isn’t just something for schoolchildren, it’s essential for all people to feel they have contributed and made their mark on society. It’s normal human nature to want to create something and feel a sense of pride and accomplishment.
If you aren’t a writer by trade, you can still reap the benefits of daily writing. You don’t need to write dissertations or novels on the daily. A few paragraphs a day is enough to get your creative muscles working and your writing skills honed. Start by creating a personal journal and write whatever you want in it. Or start a blog. You don’t have to have an audience to become a writer, you just have to have something to say.
