Writing is a medium to extract our thoughts and pen down our experiences. It not only helps us but to anyone who reads it. A writer, however, writes once but his legacy keeps on going in the form of content he/she creates.
If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” ― Albert Einstein
Writing forces us to think and get to the core idea of the subject. Your content will inspire and create a curiosity among the readers regarding the topic.
If you think that writing needs creativity, of course, it needs. But this should not stop us from giving a push to our writing because “Creativity is not built in a day. Building creativity is a process and takes pain but the fruits are sweet :)”
Besides, writing makes one stand out in the crowd making one’s profile strong.
