When you are young we are taught to read. We fall in love with the bright pictures and silly stories as we imagine ourselves in big princess dresses or in far away space adventures. Then when we get older we want to write those stories and put ourselves in them.
Worldwide, there are over 152 million books. Each year authors add another 2.2 million to that total. Now, it is more important than ever to write and share your story and it doesn’t have to be a six book series.
There is a new wave of authors: social media. Apps like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter are leading the charge in disseminating the stories of people all over the world and you could be next.
Studies show that people who write daily are better suited to handle complex problems with more efficiency. Not only does it improve one’s ability to process emotions, but if you write something you are 22 times more likely to remember it.
Writing can be a very therapeutic experience. Committing to writing down your story a couple of times of week can help you live a better quality of life. Celebrities like Anne Hathaway and historical icons like Anne Frank have shown that writing is transformative.
Yes, committing to writing may seem like a challenge at first, but it is a challenge that is well worth it. Services like Opyrus, are there to hold you accountable to the writing process as well as help you grow your skills.
Choosing to grow your writing skill is a choice that could have emotional, physical, and financial benefits. Unlike other hobbies, writing challenges you to become the person who you put down on the paper. It allows you to shape who you are and achieve the goals you set.
