If you ever needed a reason to write, hold tight! I’ve got ten!
Are you a budding writer? Or perhaps just thinking about it? Maybe you’ve entertained the idea of being the next J.K. Rowling but you have yet to put pen to paper? The problem is that we find all kinds of excuses as to why we can’t write right now, but rarely the time to make it happen.
Whatever your stance, here are 10 reasons why you should write now.
1. Because even you can make 5 minutes for your writing. Go boil that kettle. Run yourself a bubble bath. And while you wait, write.
2. Someone needs to read that book you want to write. It could change their life.
3. You need to witness what you’re capable of. You know you’re destined for greatness, right? Get writing.
4. You’ll never know what magic you can create if you never try. Try. In fact, do more than try. Do.
5. Writing a book can enhance your business, your brand, your reputation, your life. Seriously.
6. Because your voice hasn’t been heard yet, your perspective hasn’t been shared, your stories haven’t been read.
7. When you write a book, you create a legacy that will exist long after you do. How powerful is that?
8. Because if it is really important to you, you will make time to write.
9. Because it will be therapeutic. You’ll get lost in the words and for a moment all that will matter is what you’re writing.
10. Because that book won’t write itself.
I know how busy life can get, and often writing is at the bottom of our long list of priorities. But it helps to remind yourself of why you should write in the first place, and the only way to do this is to write for just 5 minutes. Hold onto the feeling you get when your words fill the page, your ideas run to the front of your mind, and your body feels overcome with purpose. That alone is reason enough to always make time to put pen to paper.
