Why Writing a List is Good for You
Sometimes I don’t know what to write, whether it’s for a post, school paper, or letter. There are all kinds of ideas swirling in the thought soup called my brain. Or there are no thoughts. Writing a list of ideas on one topic helps me corral similar thoughts or kick start the thought process.
Below are five more reasons writng a list is good for you.
- It is fast to write – so it gets the brain thinking.
- It forces you to summarize each point in a sentence or phrase.
- It helps you to see all the points at one time.
- It helps you stop, sit down, and start writing.
- You could win a prize!
