We all share stories every day through blogs, social media, and conversations with friends. Between Facebook and Twitter, nearly 1 billion posts are shared every day. Yet many believe they don’t have what it takes to tell your story. Your writing doesn’t have to be excellent to provide great benefits. Taking the time to develop a daily writing habit will benefit your physical and mental health.

Writing about your experiences for as little as 15 minutes a day can help organize your thought, heal from traumatic experiences, and even speed wound healing. People who take the simple step of writing down their goals are 1.5 times more likely to achieve them. Sharing your stories with others builds community, understanding, and can highlight core human experiences we all share in some form.

Every beginning writer needs support and tools to help them on their journey. Find inspiration to begin your writing journey in this infographic.
