I'm going to reveal the secret to writing. Right here and now, at the beginning of the article. Most people would hold it back. Force you to read the whole piece to find out. You should stay because you enjoy the content, the whole thing. And not because I'm purposefully withoulding the very piece of information that you're seeking for no purpose apart from keeping you hostage. I could have easily shared it upfront so you wouldn't have to waste time if you wanted it and nothing else.

**Writing works like a muscle. The more you use it the more you improve.**

This is true for most things in life. If you expected a kind of shortcut I'm sorry to disappoint. Unless you are born with powers I don't possess you will need to struggle like everybody else. The good thing to know is that if they made it, so can you.

## The Struggle

For these past few years, I struggled to find topics to write about. I had no ideas, or so I thought. And even when I found an idea the first thought would be. Other hundreds of other people are writing about this that have way more knowledge and experience than me on the topic. Why should I write about it if I have nothing to add to the conversation?

You have always something to add though. Even if you have little experience you might notice things that people more experienced skip over. You also have a view on things that's unique to you. Your thoughts are more valuable than you give yourself credit for.
