I rarely share articles here. It seems to me that a good search will find you anything for which you’re looking; however, I stumbled upon an article in Author’s Publisher called “8 Reasons Why Writing is the Best Thing Ever” by Chantelle Atkins. It was published April 15, 2016. Here is the link: http://www.authorspublish.com/8-reasons-why-writing-is-the-best-thing-ever/
If this doesn’t encourage you to keep at it, I just don’t know what will!
