I’ve recently been thinking about the benefits of having a daily writing practice.
I recently covered many ideas on how you can practise writing in a recent podcast episode. There are so many things you can do to write, and I’m coming around to see the benefits of having a daily writing practice.
I’ve just started a new Instagram page just for my personal use. I don’t care if I don’t have followers – it’s just a nice platform to practise on.
In this image above, I’m answering the question “What are your hobbies?”.
It’s still early days, so we’ll see how this goes, but I’m excited to see how often I can post a quick bit of writing along with a picture. I think the addition of a photo is nice because it also allows you to look back on your days and see what you did throughout the year, as well as having something to talk about in your writing.
The Benefits of a Writing Practice
I didn’t really appreciate writing much before, but I think there are many benefits. The biggest ones include:
Practising new vocabulary
Practising new and difficult grammar
Getting feedback on your language ability from others
Improve ability to describe and summarise
Practise tenses (future plans and past memories)
I’m sure there are many more benefits too. But I’ll keep this list short and hand it over to you. Share with us in the comments – do you have a writing practice? If so, what does it look like?
