I'm creating a screen recording of me writing 200 words to convince my business partner (in crime) to join the 200wad community. The thing about writing is that it's not done for a single purpose and it's not limited to writers.

Writing serves a number of purposes and provides a wide array of benefits. 

I use writing:

  • As a form of therapy to process my own thoughts and feelings, whether it's in the way I'm talking to myself mentally or after experiencing a challenging situation
  • I gain a better understanding of topics by writing about them. I process my own thoughts about a topic and pose questions to myself so I can guide my own thinking and see how I can gain a deeper understanding of concepts. Sometimes the questions force me to do further reading because the explanation of the concepts is beyond what I already know (this is especially the case when I expose myself to new terms without really knowing what they mean)
  • Writing allows me to express myself more clearly, beyond written communication. Even when I'm talking to people I find myself structuring my thoughts better, and it's largely thanks to my writing habit.

    @haideralmosawi makers live-streaming on Twitch while coding had been a recent trend...maybe soon we can also join in by live-stream writing our 200 words a day?! hmm🤔

      @jasonleow I've not watched live-streams, so I don't know what the experience is like. I would enjoy watching if the writer gives a commentary on what they want to see as they're writing/outlining the piece.

      @basilesamel Took me about 4mins 15secs for this post. 😬

      I'm tempted to post it online for people to realize how easy writing 200 words a day can be. Even if it's not 4 minutes, 10 or 15 minutes are worth it.
