14 Ways Writing Changes You for the Better

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?

1. You learn how to be more concise. (Translation: you get your points across a lot faster.)

2. You’re more self-aware.

3. You’re also much more aware of your surroundings.

4. You pay more attention to the world, and your place in it.

5. You meet a lot of cool people. (Some fictional, some not.)

6. You’re more empathetic.

7. You’re a better problem-solver.

8. You’re (probably) a little less of a perfectionist … until you need to be.

9. You get better at filtering out good ideas from bad ones. (You’re better at making decisions.)

10. You’re a more cautious, yet loyal, human being.

11. You’re less afraid of putting yourself out there. (What do you have to lose?)

12. You’re better at setting, and achieving, goals.

13. You go through life knowing your purpose.

14. You get to provide the world with more amazing, unique stories to read and enjoy.
