Consistently practicing creative writing in any form – movie script, novel, prose, poetry or love letter, will set in motion the creative part of your brain for extraordinary results, professionally and personally.
Even just putting pen to paper every day for any reason or length of time has huge benefits.
Here’s just a little list of 32 ways creative writing can help you at everything ever.
I stand by this list, because everything on it happened to me.
1. Relieves stress
