Just Start Writing
Sometimes it’s hard to find inspiration to write. Maybe a million ideas are in your head and you can’t narrow down your focus. Or maybe no ideas are in your head and you feel like you’ll never write a coherent, meaningful sentence again.
But like so many other things you tend to put off, writing gets easier after you start. You just have to get momentum. Starting is a whole lot easier said than done, however.
Although I’m often guilty of not writing until I’ve found the perfect thing to say, I’ve found that it’s better to just write something, anything to spark your creativity.
Even if’s not relevant to the prompt or essay topic you’re working with, just start writing. It could be about your day, how you’re feeling, or your thoughts on the latest episode of your favorite TV show.
Writing is a great way to untangle and organize your thoughts and emotions. Writing can help you understand what you’re feeling and why, and if you’re unhappy, what you can do to change how you’re feeling. It can also calm you down and encourage you to view a situation without the obstruction of anger.
There are so many benefits to writing. All you have to do is pick up a pencil (or laptop) and start pouring out your thoughts and feelings, no matter how scattered or messy.
