1. Great post! I think writing can be beneficial in so many ways. but no, it doesn’t always have to be “polished”. Post cards, letters, thoughts all of it counts. You’ve got to love it but it’s worth it.

    • I totally agree. Not all writing must be polished. It’s important to not worry too much about the final, polished piece and enjoy the process.

  2. I think the best part of this post is the “courage” part. It totally takes guts to let other people read your thoughts and feelings. I’m going to bookmark this for a quick look back when I’m stuck on my blog for sure.

  3. I so agree! This is an amazing list 😍 I think the love of the subject is paramount, at least in my experiences. I wrote a 60 page thesis and I can’t imagine writing it on a boring topic! Thank you for these other great tips too 🙂

  4. Thanks for sharing this! I have just started on my journey and have a long long way to go! I definitely have the love and learning, a bit of ruthlessness and a sprinkle of courage… but the rest, definitely a work in progress!
