"It took me many years to understand that it's not a question of either/or – it's both. I didn't start writing daily until I was 35 (that was last year). I've been writing on Quora and my personal blogs (Know It !) for many years, but only occasionally. However, to become a good writer, you must first be a good reader.
Reading is not creativity. Creativity comes from reading, understanding, and applying what you've learned to your life. Once you can do that, you're ready to share how you did it. That's where writing comes in. I write because I want to share what I know to help people. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't, I try to improve my writing so my message is conveyed as I intended.
Daily writing is a different beast compared to blogging occasionally. If you're writing a daily journal, it's just for you. You don't worry about grammar, flow, or even complete sentences, as long as you understand it. However, it's a boon for gaining clarity in life. Nothing will give you more clarity than writing daily. Ask yourself this question: is your life important enough to be remembered? If so, then write daily.
Creativity doesn't happen overnight. It takes a lot of time. Rather than starting something because it will make you creative, start because it will make you better. Being better is more important than being creative."
"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul." – Dieter F. Uchtdorf.
