9 Reasons Why You Should Write A Book

23 November 2020 0 By Msoouter Kaase

One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time.

Carl Sagan


Let’s look at two fun facts about books that you didn’t know of.


1. Did you know that Ernest Hemingway sharpened pencils to help him think while he was writing?


2. Did you know that the longest ever book title consists of over 3,700 words?


This piece is dedicated to you. Yes you, I am talking to you.

You who have refused to write down your stories, thoughts and opinions.

You who have written but refused to shared with the world.

It’s a few weeks to the end of the year 2020 and you still choose not to show the world what you’re made of.


If you don’t know why you should write a book now, then take my hand as I show you 9 reasons why you should.


• To leave a mark: We still talk about Shakespeare and Charles Dickens though they lived many years before us. Even in death, they still speak to us. Writing a book is one way to immortalise yourself because we live short lives. You can live forever when you write and share your stories. Now you know. Start making plans to leave your legacy now.


• A sense of pride and accomplishment: How did you feel when you met the deadline set for you by your boss? Do you remember how you felt when you got awarded for excellence at work or school? No one in the right frame of mind will look back at such happy moments with regrets. Except maybe you didn’t deserve it. Holding a book you have written will fill your heart with indescribable joy. All the late nights and fighting writers block will give way to feelings of pride.


• No excuses: If you thought you had excuses, then remember that Agatha Christie author of Murder on the Orient Express, suffered from dysgraphia. This meant she couldn’t write legibly. Therefore, she dictated all her novels. Given the opportunity, you will come up with a bucket list of reasons why you can’t write. But believe me when I say it is time to ditch those thoughts.


• To share your perspective: if you are like me, sharing views in the full glare of the public can be frightening. But you have to communicate your unique opinions to the rest of the world. You need to write a book. It doesn’t matter of it shares similarity with another writer. Just get on with it.


• To improve your skill: Do you still have memories of when you first rode a bicycle? I am sure you own a scar as a grim reminder of your inexperienced days. This is the same thing with writing. You can never get better at it if you do not begin writing now. Get your books written. Let people critique and give their reviews. Learn from them and grow.


• To cool-off steam: Sometimes we experience traumatic and annoying events which we find difficult to share with others verbally. You can vent all that anger and frustration on paper. It’s like a mental work out. It doesn’t matter what genre you write or the number of words you pen down. Just write something down, and you will be surprised at how therapeutic it can be.


• Financial gain: Writing a book can make a living for you. You mustn’t be Stephen King or J.K. Bowling to begin making money off your book. You too can write and sell once you publish your book. You can sell and make money for the rest of your life while laying down in bed.


• To attract clients: Are you a business owner in need of new client’s? It’s a silly question. Who doesn’t need new clients? Writing books that provided answers to specific problems faced by potential clients will have a bunch of them looking for you. This is good for business. Write your book and get it on Kindle or Amazon.


• Showcase your credibility and expertise: We live in an environment with stiff competition. Brands and businesses are always on the lookout for ways to out perform the other. Writing a book is one way to give you that edge. You set yourself apart from the crowd, by presenting yourself as the “go-to” person in your field.


You can start with a 10 page book. You can publish an e-book. Starting now is the best option for you, because there isn’t any perfect time to begin writing.
