So why am I writing?
Because what you don’t use, you lose. I wrote regularly for four years in college and learned a lot. It was hard, it felt like pulling teeth, and I didn’t particularly enjoy it at the time, but it made me better. I don’t want to lose what I worked for.
Because it helps clarify my thoughts. It forces me to take a jumbled mess of half-formed ideas and try to make something coherent out of it. It’s easy to sail through life with your head in the clouds and never have a strong opinion on anything. Never look inside yourself and work to improve. I don’t want to be that person.
Writing is a way to connect the dots, to clarify and re-confirm thoughts, and to own up to your own opinion. Writing is painful and risky but worthy of the consistency. You snooze you lose. Don’t give up on writing.
