Well over 100 blog posts in and I can say that my commitment to writing regularly and sharing it publicly is among the best decisions I’ve ever made.
I’ve discovered that when we’re on the hook to write about our experiences, it forces us to pay attention to things that may have otherwise gone unnoticed.
And, when we share our work in public we can’t help but get better at it. Read the writing of authors you respect and you’ll find their work isn’t as good in the beginning.
More importantly, the act of writing helps us understand what we think. What’s more crucial than that?
If you don’t know what you think, perhaps you need to read what you write.
Consider dedicating 20 minutes every day to just write. Something magical might happen if you do.
