Writing helps one communicate ideas to others or to yourself.
Rather than supressing or forcing feelings, you can write until the pressure is gone.
Ideally, your writing produces a fantastic, best-selling novel of a heroic character or cunning villian.
Truthfully, it may not happen but you can acknowlege thoughts and let new ones form.
If you can’t find anything to write about on your own, ask for help or look for a topic of interest where ideas can flow.
Never abandon a piece of writing because it is “dull” or “pointless.”
Getting to the end of the story isn’t the point; the point is to make connections and form new thoughts.
Writing is brilliant for those who accept it as a tool for communication rather than a chore given by teachers and bosses.
