10. Because setting a personal goal that isn’t related to work is really, really rewarding. And quite frankly, addicting. Ever since I realized I’m actually writing a book (which will probably never be published, to be honest), I can’t help but wonder, is there anything I can’t do?! (Answer is, yes self, there are many, many things you cannot do, but for the sake of this post just go with it.)
9. Because you can finally get that awesome idea you’ve had brewing in your head for months out on paper.
8. It will give your mind something to obsess over rather than
real life other things. Who cares about daily drama when you can just dream about your plot and character development?
7. It connects you with other people who are doing their thang, just like you! (Oh hey, everyone who’s linking up today!)
6. Being creative is underrated. Let yourself process things that have happened in your life by writing about it. I’m shocked about some of the experiences my character is dealing with because it gives me clarity realizing how I could have dealt with things differently, or how I felt about a certain situation.
5. You can casually say “sorry I can’t hang out tonight, I have to work on my book” and it WON’T BE LYING IT WILL BE THE TRUTH. And that will give you street cred (not really)
4. You can start a writing circle (a chance to talk about writing and drink wine… I mean hello!) and it will quickly become the best part of your week.
3. Writing makes you want to read more. And reading is super cool.
2. Because you can totally do it.
1. The world is waiting for the next great book… will it be yours?
