Writing has existed for a very very long time. It’s a way of communication. It’s a way of sharing knowledge. But it’s also so much more than that.
Writing makes me feel calm…at ease…it allows me to think…to gather my thoughts. It helps me to put beautiful experiences into words.
Many people struggle to write because they believe they just don’t have the inborn talent or as soon as they sit down to write all their creativity fades away.
There’s an interesting study that shows that we struggle to use our ‘right’ and ‘left’ brain simultaneously, because the one is trying to be creative and the other is trying to analyse what we have already written. The key thing is to keep on writing. Just don’t stop. Allow the creativity to flow. You can analyse and edit everything once you think you have enough.
There is just something about putting your thoughts on paper. It’s a wonderful way of introspection. In some ways, it helps you understand yourself a bit better.
We all have our ‘talents’ or the things we are good at. Whether we gathered the experience overtime or we were just blessed with incredible skill. We can all do something, but that doesn’t mean we’re necessarily going to be good at it the first time. You will get better with time. But the point is that you will be doing what you want to do, whether you’re good or bad at it. Being bad at something is part of the process. Don’t hide it from the world. They will eventually cheer you on as they see how you get better and better.
Not anyone can be a good writer. But anyone can be a writer.
