An author of the book" Aggregate 50", a frequent traveler, nature lover and a financial executive.

Writing is a beautiful journey where your mind, soul, and body function as one entity. You begin with one thought and with the passage of time numerous ideas get attached to it.

You start packing your ideas in your mind according to the destination you choose. The selection depends on where are you going, for how long, what your mode of travel is, and whether it's for fiction, science, real, or fantasy.

A writer lives the life of many people in the form of characters even if he is writing his own story, he is writing his experiences, he is reliving those moments so he will never want to inject any negativity in the content.


"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."

--Benjamin Franklin

Why Writing Is a Proper Diet For Your Brain?

No one will ever consume a poison consciously, likewise when you write you can't write awful things deliberately as such thoughts will affect your own brain because what you are thinking is what you are writing. Almost all writers want their readers to feel good. A writer is a person who creates the characters after feeling them, knowing them. Some writers craft their imagination into reality, some simply write from the real world but almost all want to write something that will serve the purpose for their readers. They have the seed of an idea which they cultivate and serve them for the benefit of the reader. As a writer we learn a lot of things from everything, we filter out the best thing from the huge data and help our readers to grow. Writing is a process of structured thinking. When you start painting the words on the blank canvas, your mind starts working on its structure hence, it exercises your brain.


How Writing Affects Our Life

Stimulates Positive Thinking:

A writer lives the life of many characters in his life even if he is writing his own experiences, he has to relive those moments. In the process, he understands a lot of things about life. Being the creator of the story, a writer always wants his readers to feel good so deliberately he tries his best to infuse positivity and good content in the story.

Magnifies Our Knowledge :

Some writers craft their imagination into reality, some simply write from the real world but almost all want to write something that can serve the purpose for their readers so it requires a lot of effort and research which helps the writers to amplify their idea and knowledge.

A Writer Believes More In A Scissor Than It's Pen:

A writer always filters out the most important things from the mammoth of information and presents his readers what is important, it helps the writer in selective thinking. Editing is more important than writing.

Patience Is a Virtue And In Writing You Can't Afford To Bargain On This:

A writer needs lots of patience to pen down his ideas, it consumes loads of time and effort. Some times the cake comes out perfectly and sometimes it feels like, it's not your day.

It Enhances Your Structural Thinking:

Weaving your ideas in a perfect way is an art. Writing helps in structural thinking, writing anything haphazardly will not serve the purpose. A proper presentation is required to keep a grip on your subject and reader.

It Acts as a Therapy:

Writing helps you to floss all malicious emotions from your mind. It acts as therapy by engaging your mind In a constructive way. It helps us to see things from different perspectives.

Acts like a Friend:

You can vomit anything on the paper and it will not judge you. Writing helps in understanding and know yourself while writing, you have to ask tough questions to yourself; or impose prying, meddlesome inquiries on others, in the process you get the opportunity to peep inside your own soul.

Writing Helps Us Building The Vocabulary:

Being able to choose more descriptive words to help your readers envision what you are describing, you need to build a strong vocabulary. Writing helps you to do so.

Makes Us Stress-free:

Writing helps in gaining control of your emotions. When you put your disturbing thoughts on the paper, it calms storms and helps your mind to relax.

It Helps In Financial Gain:

Writing skills are a valuable asset that can earn money for you. It can generate both passive and active income through blogging, content writing, affiliate marketing, in the form of a book or writing an article.J.K Rowling, author of the series, Harry Potter is the richest author of the world.

Writing Helps You To Connect With Many Readers:

You can create an impact on your readers by a powerful writeup. You can easily connect with them through effective and efficient nonverbal communication. It boosts our professional confidence.

It Enhances Your Creativity:

You have to express your knowledge in a well constructed and easy to understand format rather than a hodgepodge of thoughts in your head. This process can frequently lead to discovering more about the subject you're teaching through curiosity and a desire to deliver as much value as feasible.


Putting yourself in the place of the person while jotting down your thought on the paper helps you to gain empathy. Writing transforms you constructively. You can use it as a weapon too your pen has immense strength to stand for your point. So keep writing and helping everyone.

      Writing is a great way to express ourselves in an artistic manner. Just as drawing is to the painter so as writing is to the writer.
