HI there other YWS users. I had to write a speech about my favorite hobby for my speech class. So I figured why not post it here to and see what you guys think about it.
I've only ever heard of one hobby that you never stop learning how to do.
Creative writing is impossible to completely master, but you can get close, and trying to has so many benefits.
Creative writing can motivate you to learn new things, help with social skills, and even help you achieve a more relaxed lifestyle.
Many times you will find fiction writers learning to do new things. Like music, or programming, or about foreign cultures, or new languages, or anything else they may need. And that is why you can never completely master writing. Because to do so, you must learn about everything you may one day write about.
I find that each time I write about human characters it helps me understand human nature just a little bit better. Always trying to decide if it seems right if this character does that, or if that character does this.
Which makes it easier to interact with the people around me, because I can guess at what they mean when they do whatever it is their doing that makes no sense, and how they expect me to respond to it.
A lot of writers tend to do this one very common exercise called free writing. The name pretty much explains it, they simply sit down and write whatever comes to mind. This is very challenging at first for most writers. The idea of not bothering with spelling or grammar, and simply writing whatever. Even if all they do is just list food items.
Sometimes this has an effect on their everyday lives. They will sometimes become a little more relaxed about things. For myself it shows in my music. I no longer get nervous at concerts because I know no matter how I do on this one there will be another, and I'll do better on that one.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is that creative writing can help improve your daily life, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new hobby.
