The Power of Words: How Writing Can Improve Your Life

October 6, 2012 — Leave a comment

We often forget the power of words and the extent of their reach.

I have always felt that my writing ability does not live up to my own expectations for excellence. It’s something I’ve struggled with but something I want to face.

Words are powerful. They can bring good and they can also cause harm.

I think you should consider putting your thoughts on paper.

How Writing Can Improve Your Life

“Writing is not life, but I think that sometimes it can be a way back to life.”
– Stephen King, On Writing

The act of writing can bring benefits to your life. It isn’t always easy, but getting into a habit of writing can bring you joy and success. Here are a few ways your life can be improved by writing:

  1. Record and remember your past.
  2. Plan your future.
  3. Connectedness: Communicate with loved ones. Make friends online from around the globe.
  4. Introspection: Gives you time to be alone with your thoughts.
  5. Emotional relief: Putting your feelings on paper can be therapeutic.
  6. Creativity: Tell a story.
  7. Provide clarity to your thoughts.
  8. Pleasure: Writing can be fun!
  9. Personal growth: Practice makes perfect, get better at something.

How To Get Started with Writing

Just write, don’t be overly concerned with grammar and formatting. Just get your thoughts and/or knowledge on paper. You’ll get better over time (as will I) and as you write, you can research ways to get better. Just don’t let any excuse get in your way from starting, you’ll just be procrastinating.

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
– Benjamin Franklin

Just put pen to paper or fingers to keys and start writing. Write what is on your mind, or write for what you want to be there. Write for yourself, or write for others.

Start. Start now.
