Let’s first consider the essence of writing. What is writing, after all?
Writing is one subset of communication. If you’re “good with words”, people will generally listen to you, respect you, and value your advice. Being a good writer involves a lot of bonuses:
- Improved communication with your friends, lover, business clients, unknown persons.
- Better jobs, salaries, and career choices.
- The satisfaction of winning written arguments and making valid points
- The respect of all the people who read your carefully crafted words.
Now some people think that you can only be a good writer if you have the “born talent”. That’s truly a big myth. Everyone learns to write during school, and everyone chooses the standards of their writing expertise.
For example, if a young kid wants to be an author, he’ll make sure to prioritize his writing knowledge and skills throughout school and college.
Nevertheless, if you haven’t found some good enough reasons why you need to improve your writing skills by this moment in life, here’s what you probably haven’t considered:
Writing Helps You Think Better
Writing improves the way you talk to others but also enhances the clarity of your mind chattering. Your internal talk can be improved through writing practice. The more you write, the more cognitive processes your brain will perform to complete the task.
Improve your writing and you’ll become a better problem-solver, as you’re always faced with this “problem” of “solving” various sentences, ideas, messages, and points that you want to make.
Generally, a writer will think much faster than a person who barely writes anything. Journaling is a great way to start!
Writing Gives You Fluency
How fluent are you in a verbal conversation? Are you getting lost often? Are you effectively conveying your message without boring the other person?
By improving your writing expertise, you’ll know exactly what people want to hear, how they want to hear it, and when they want to hear it.
Besides that, you’ll be able to take your listeners from point A to point B without giving them the chance to get distracted. That’s something that few people can do, and those who can do it will often reap amazing social and professional benefits.
Professional Writing is Highly Appreciated Everywhere You Go
As a college student, I consistently asked Edubirdie to write my essay in order to improve my grades. The professional academic writer assigned to complete my requests helped me realize how profitable writing actually is. He was earning more than my parents’ salaries combined, only with a four-hour workday schedule.
It was that moment when I realized how many benefits you can actually get by knowing how to craft content, or, simpler put, knowing how to effectively place words on a piece of paper.
Therefore, improve your writing and simply observe the effects. See what happens when you send emails to professionals (are the results improving?). See what happens when you talk to your spouse, or with your friend who could never understand what you’ve meant when you were writing stuff online. Great writing brings great advantages!
Writing Helps You Improve Your Self-Awareness
The more you write the more you’ll understand yourself better. Writing is often an introspective process, and it opens you up to a world of mental possibilities.
What does that mean?
Whenever you hold a pen in your hand and a blank paper in your face, you’re entering an altered state of consciousness in which your conscious mind connects and draws information from the subconscious “side”.
When you focus on finding solutions for your life problems, keeping a journal will always help you figure out what you want and what you need to do.
When you focus on proving a fact or a thesis through an essay, for example, you’re removing yourself from your mental comfort zone and you’re exploring new fields and realms. That thing will help you create a “better relationship” with yourself and with your thoughts, ideas, and feelings.
Writing Skills Make You Charismatic and Almost Seductive
If this doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will.
When you become a better writer, you become a better verbal communicator. When you go out and meet strangers, your communication mastery will provide enough self-confidence to shine in almost every context.
Take another context. Let’s think of work. If you’re the “new employee” who needs to get integrated into a big company, being able to effectively convey your personality without causing any discomforts is a skill that goes hand in hand with writing.
It’s just like writing a good introduction, in the context of an entire article. If you structure the introduction, body, and the conclusion properly, the result will be satisfying.
Great writers are always charismatic and almost seductive. They know how to ask things, prove facts, and tell great stories. Few people would figure how come they’re so charismatic and pleasant to hang with, though now you’ll do.
Take what you’ve heard here and think about it for a few days. You’re basically one decision away from significantly improving the quality of your personal, social, and professional circumstances. What do you think? Is it worth the effort?
