Writing every day is important if you want to improve your writing skill. You just have to be consistent and disciplined. You cannot write only when you feel like. You must be intentional about it. Why go through all that stress just to become a writer you may be wondering. Here are a few things writing daily does for you;
Makes you a better writer. That’s pretty obvious isn’t it? The more you write the better you will become. Consistency and dedication lead to perfection.
Improves your thought process. Writing forces you to think carefully about past and current events and put them in a coherent article or blog post. It helps to make your thoughts concrete.
Gives you a perspective. Writing every day causes you to explore various ways of thinking. You may choose to write a post through the eyes of your reader or some random person on the street. You begin to look beyond your own perspective alone.
Aids reflection. Writing causes you to look inward. You look at your experiences, both past and present, you look at your mistakes, you look at your life as a whole. It makes you have a deeper sense of who you are and this will rub off on the way you write.
Getting new ideas. When you follow through with the discipline to write every day, fresh ideas will constantly come to your mind. Your eyes become open to the various sources of inspiration you have at your disposal.
Building followers. As you commit to writing daily, you will notice that your followers will increase. You may start out having one new follower per day but over time that will increase dramatically, depending on the quality of what you write.
