Obviously I’m a fan of writing. I think I’ve always been. Ever since high school and university, I always found essay assignments and paragraph questions on exams to be a breeze. I feel like I’m better able to express myself through pen and paper – or fingers to keys – as opposed to spoken word.
Actually, thinking back now I know that to be true. That’s why I joined Toastmasters years ago. You’ve got to balance the strengths and weaknesses. But I digress.
Besides the enjoyment I get from organizing my thoughts in somewhat clearer ideas, there are evident benefits to moving what’s bouncing around in your head into literature. When I refer to writing things down, I mean writing a book, articles, blog posts, to-do lists, and whatever other forms of writing you can think of or imagine.
