Do your stories help expand your mind?
Expand Your Mind Through Understanding
Life is confusing and chaotic. It can be difficult to piece things together and figure out what your future holds. Writing is your outlet to understand yourself, your views, and the world around you. It’s not all about fiction stories that transport you to new worlds. Writing is journalling, blogging, biographies, non-fiction pieces.
Recently, I’ve started working on a handful of non-fiction books. They are similar to my blog and have been very therapeutic for me while writing them. With my work, I don’t just want to use fiction tales to create imagination and inspire. I want to speak directly to the readers and give them something relateable. I want to share my worldviews and allow my audience to interact with me on a personal level.
Writing helps you explore differing opinions and work through your struggles. No matter what stage in life you’re in, there’s always a new mystery to uncover. You’re trying to understand the world and make sense of the bigger picture. Touching on tough topics, trying to help yourself and others find their place in all this. You’re searching to understand yourself as a whole and working to have empathy with others.
Depending on what you want to write, you may have to do a little research on history, culture, or something else that’s important to you. The process of research can start an adventure before you begin writing. You find yourself immersed in this new information and forget why you looked it up in the first place. You gain new knowledge that may or may not end up in the story. Either way, you know it now, along with all the other intriguing information you accumulated over the years. You’re cultured. And who doesn’t love bragging about that, right?
