Writing is for the writer. Albeit writing could also be for ones family (providing a small bit of money), but most would agree their spouses or children do not get much out of writing besides perhaps a saner you.
I believe no matter what you are good at, you should use that talent or gift for the better of others and the world.
Here are a few ways you can enrich not only you but also the world around you through writing. If you can think of more ways please post below.
- Write an article or blog for a non profit you believe in at no charge.
- Write thank you notes. Not exactly a riveting idea, but stop and think for a moment. When is the last time you said thank you in a profound way?
- Write a note of encouragement to someone who is struggling to let them know you are thinking of them or praying for them. Not some cheesy half-hearted attempt, use your creative mind!
Writing is competitive and for the individual. Stop for a moment today to use it for someone else.
