People assume, wrongly, that you have to be a writer before you actually try writing. We don't think that about running. No one says, "I want to run a marathon," and then grabs their sneakers and runs 26 miles. It's more likely they fall to the ground after 10 minutes! No, people who want to run marathons realize they have to work up to it, bit by bit, in order to have success.
The same is true of writing. It's called a writing practice for a reason. You have to practice to actually get better.
And you have to practice in order to see how writing, even if it's just for your eyes only, can benefit you in your daily life; how writing can help you better understand what's going on and how to handle it. As Flannery O'Conner so wisely said, "I write because I don't know what I think until I read what I say."
