Unfortunately, reading isn’t the only step towards becoming a capable writer. Malcolm Gladwell, in his book Outliers: The Story of Success, claims that it takes approximately 10,000 hours to master something. This doesn’t sound too daunting until you break it down. If we were to write an hour every single day, it would take us about 27.4 years to reach 10,000 hours, and as much as we adore writing, we know that we are WAY off from reaching this goal. Even if “10,000 hours to perfection” isn’t 100% accurate, you can’t expect to excel at anything without frequent, habitual practice.
The purpose of this section is to give you a reason to “just sit down and write something” by posting small bouts of inspiration through prompts, words of the day, quotes of the day, challenges, and more.
