Thoughts On Writing and Sanity

Everything I do starts with words on a page. Well, words on a screen.
These days video rules. Everyone wants the instant gratification video provides. I love video too but at heart, I am a writer.
Today, I started a column on Medium, and I write about how daily writing helps keep you sane.
If you like writing or you are a fan of good mental health, join me for this conversation.
Specific emotional benefits to daily writing:

If you read something you’ve written, it helps reinforce your commitment to the idea. Commitment leads to action.
A Record of Your Growth
