Why YOU Should Write Too 

Calling all writers! And non-writers. 

Everyone is always going on about how you should find yourself and know who you are (I myself believe that I am a few different kinds of people, depending on my mood. But that’s a story for another day).

A great way to know and understand yourself better is by writing. Writing can reveal truths about ourselves that we would never have discovered any other way.

The primary duty of literature is to tell us the truth about ourselves by telling us lies about people who never existed.

We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.

-Stephen King

It doesn’t matter what you write, who you show it to or what you do with your work. Isn’t it crazy? With just a pen and a blank piece of paper you can create worlds; you can make people laugh, you can make people cry. You can make people feel; you can motivate and inspire.

To me that’s the closest thing to magic we’ll get.

Writing is very personal, I believe this is why writers find it so scary to share their writing with others. It is a piece of themselves that they are putting out there for others to judge and rip apart.

Still, I want to encourage all writers to share what they have written. What if people don’t like it? But… what if they DO?

7 Billion people experienced this day in a different way. Your story deserves to be told. Who knows who you might be helping, inspiring, teaching?

Write beautifully, write brutally, write anything, write everything. Just write.

  1. Humble, honest and amazingly inspiring, thank you for posting this. We all exist in the world as unique being and ALL HAVE A STORY! Not everyone is blessed with literacy, excellent grammar or the capacity to smith words into the tales of our existence! Be it truth or fiction, they are our stories, thoughts and uninhibited expressions. All we have, is our memories, when we leave this existence. So I thank you for these inspiring words!

  2. I truly believe that writing is more beneficial then talking at times. It forces your mind to think, wonder, not just blurt out garbage. Writing has always calmed me when I was anxious, and helped me to figure out things when nobody could. Great piece!

    1. I have been there too, I’ve tried to commit suicide theee times. It is a very dark hole that you have to force yourself to crawl out of. If you can find meaning in life and motivation to live you can do ANYTHING. Absolutely anything. Becoming positive and finding a way to enjoy life is the hardest thing you ever have to do, but once you fight your way through things will be so much better and soon you’ll find it crazy that there was a time when you wanted to die. Much love ❤️

  3. Glad you liked my post (thank you) else I wouldn’t’ve come by this gem. I can so relate with writing being personal. I know the terror I experience whenever I’m about to press the publish button-like I’m revealing too much of myself, it’s sheer agony and yeah, anyone can write

  6. I love to write. I do it every day. And by that, I mean I blog every day. I should be writing a book, but I don’t have the time to dedicate to it until this spring. Then, I’ll work on my book every day. I haven’t taken a day off writing in nearly two years, actually. It’s almost like an addiction. I feel that I need to write something, no matter how big or small it is. But it helps me develop my own style and gives me a way to express myself. I can’t see myself ever stopping.

  7. Wow. I started writing my blog in the hopes that it would help me discover myself. It seemed silly in my head, but maybe it wasn’t.

    I never really thought of 7 billion people experiencing the same day in 7 billion different ways. You have a gift – of writing & of imagination. And I’m glad I can experience it through your blog 🙂

  8. I really like this post. I have always had a heart to write, at least since I can remember. I do believe that words change people, sentences, paragraphs, etc. I know a few books that have changed or impacted my perspective on certain subjects. I also agree that what we write can help encourage, inspire or get someone else through something they are dealing with. Last, but certainly not least, I do understand why many do not want to write their stories. It is personal, it makes them vulnerable, and it begs to question what someone else will think about them after sharing. I felt the same way before I accepted that God had given me a gift and I was not honoring Him by not using it. And, while some may agree with what I write, or disagree with what I write, I write. Thanks.

  10. I know this post is from a while back, but I wanted to know more about you from the start. Your “about me” page is the default, so there were no answers there. The only logical answer seemed to go back and look for something you may have written about yourself when you started.

    I still haven’t found that, but I am glad I found THIS post. Writing is one of those topics I could discuss for days and still find new things to say. It saved me at a time when no one or nothing else would or could. Certainly it is no coincidence that I started shutting myself in my bedroom to write when I was a teenager…when stepfather’s A-hole-ism was reaching critical mass.

    Plus in school, I was starting to find interest in girls. That meant I tried reaching out to and dating some, and that was when I learned something new about myself: I was socially awkward, and bad at communicating with people. Social cues meant nothing to me. This caused too many misunderstandings to count, and I was labeled a “creep.” Naturally, this meant rejection.

    So to deal with all this pain, I started writing. I controlled the words. I controlled the people in the stories. I controlled who lived or died. If there was a character in my story who was bullied, you bet your ass he was going to get retribution by the end of the story.

    I didn’t have friends, or a girlfriend, or a family that understood me…but I had writing, dammit!
