5 Important Reasons You Should Never Stop Writing

If only there's a law that imprisons writers who discontinued writing for a very long time, I would surrender myself to the authorities immediately.

If only there’s a law that imprisons writers who discontinued writing for a very long time, I would surrender myself to the authorities immediately. No buts, not ifs, no questions asked.

Yes, I’ve been on another online detox this holiday break. I promised myself that I would never touch my Facebook and LinkedIn account this holiday break to make sure that I could start fresh. For once, I wanted to focus my time and attention to my work and my family. I never posted anything on my Facebook and LinkedIn account because I wanted everything to be special. Although the detox was great (and boy, that really did helped me a lot,) I regretted one thing. I never actually wrote anything during this detox session.

To be honest, my write ups were now rarer than Bigfoot (so I did kinda exaggerate it a bit much.) And sad to say, I did lose some followers with this dormant stage. So if you’re still here and you were notified that I wrote something, let me give you a big warm virtual hug.

I do regret not letting my fingers bend and dance with my keyboard. I do regret not letting my mind exercise by thinking of weird yet informative things that I know could make everyone smile and feel entertained.  Now, I do just hope that I it’s not too late for me to recover from this dormant stage of writing.

So if you are a writer like me who stopped writing for a certain amount of time, please do us a favor and start off again with me!

Why? Well, it’s because of these reasons:

  1. You are someone’s idol, hope, and inspiration – I read tons of messages thanking me because I inspired them to write their own thoughts on a medium like this. Yes, I was technically their “reason” to write. Unfortunately, their inspiration expired for a bit. I wonder if they’re still writing even if I was away.
     
  2. You works could be a part of their daily routine – Again, your daily posting could be a part of their morning coffee, or night routine. Can you imagine yourself if your family members suddenly stopped greeting you the moment you wake up? Now that’s something, right?
     
  3. No matter how bad you write, there will always be someone who loves your work – I do admit that I’m not really that great when it comes to grammar. But what makes me itch for posting daily write ups is that there are people (such as my good friend Paul Drury) who recognize my efforts in providing interesting POVs on a medium full of overused contents and topics.
     
  4. Writing helps you loosen up – Stressed? Fed up with that guy who stole your spot in your favorite coffee shop? Irritated because your neighbors were noisy? Trust me when I say this, but the best way to vent out is by writing. TIP: Do you really want to release that stress? Write a rant about everything and just post it online.
     
  5. It is because no matter what happens in life, writing is simply one of the best ways to express yourself – And I believe that nobody could deny that fact. Just let your fingertips do the work and let your heart and mind help you out in creating your very own masterpiece.

Readers (and writers alike,) please let this be a wake-up call for you. Continue writing. Continue inspiring. Continue being who you are by writing!
