Why is writing good for you? There are so many reasons why writing is important, here are some of the key factors that help to explain exactly why writing is good for you and why you might want to consider writing.
Writing helps to improve analytical or problem-solving skills. Regular writing will help you to become quicker at constructing sentences, conveying opinions and exploring tone of voice. These are all very transferable skills for the workplace.
If you want to get into blogging, writing on out Co-writers corner is a good place to start! It gives you the opportunity to practice different styles of writing and find a writing method or technique that suits you.
We know that life can be a very stressful time for students, with endless trials and work, but writing down thoughts and feelings can be a good way to relieve this stress, relaxing the brain by clearing the mind and creating a similar outcome to mediation.
The more you write, the more you will learn. It has been proven that writing information down helps to reinforce the knowledge in your brain and you're more likely to remember this information for longer! Depending on the topic you are writing about, we have listed our topics to be written and collaborate with you below.
Writing introduces you to new words and encourages you to utilise different language styles. You will discover a more diverse range of vocabulary in order to deliver your messages clearly. This takes some organisation and planning but will inspire you to find sophisticated words to emphasise key points made.
This is one of the key benefits of writing by hand; focusing on writing takes time away from modern technology (the screen of your phone or TV which are said to have a negative effect on concentration) and instead clears your thoughts and directs your attention, allowing you to make better decisions.
Rationalising your thoughts enables you to become more productive in other ways. Writing activates neurons in your brain which subsequently helps you to complete other tasks. Similarly, if you write down your goals, you are far more likely to achieve them.
It is well known that our imagination tends to weaken with age, and so creative writing can be very empowering. Practicing being observational and inventive with ideas not only improves your descriptive skills, but can also have positive health benefits, boosting feelings of happiness and fulfilment.
Another advantage of writing is that it can improve communication skills which will facilitate improvements in confidence and self-esteem. Writing can make it easier for you to communicate complex viewpoints more effectively, practice persuasive skills and grow your 'voice'.

Oh how I LOVE words! I have always had this love affair with words, and words in any language. I like to talk, I LOVE to write AND I know I am NOT alone.
I speak English and Thai. As a 17yo I lived in Thailand as an exchange student and ended up starting a small English class at the school I was a student at, this was a wonderful experience. I also studied French at school and could very well get away with being understood in France. It felt good to communicate with people in their own mother tongue.
I backpacked around the world as a 22yo for a couple of years and visited many non english speaking countries which of course was right down my alley. From hitch hiking through Italy, driving a van through France, Spain, Switzerland. Taking ferries to and from Greece, Turkey and what is now Croatia. I learned some of their words, whilst using my hands to speak, facial expressions, laughter and smiles. I also taught some English to those who wanted to learn.
I was also very big into journaling. I have a whole suitcase of diaries / journals which I have filled over my lifetime full of words, experiences and moments. Some moments, which have to remain totally under wraps! What do I do with a bunch of diaries I don’t want anyone to read? Maybe you can answer what you would do? :)
Fast forward, here we are now, at the Ego Academy, sharing and still loving words. Our Co-Writers have loved every part of the process and we now offer this to you!
You will learn more about who we are and believe me, you will also learn a whole heap about who you are too. The words and writing topics are not limited to our suggestions above, you may have a word or a small handful of words you’d like to write about, and you can share these with us, to see if they align with our own ethos. So, please don’t be shy, hop on board and join us inside our corner our Co-Writers Corner, here at Ego Academy.
Discovering your unbound identity could very well be more than you ever expected it to be!
Love, Penelope x
