One benefit I find from regular writing: it helps me move on from an idea that I’ve been holding on to. These ideas are sometimes really powerful, but it’s easy to get stuck in a rut of returning back to that idea rather than building on top of it or looking for something new. Writing about it moves it into the world and it can either become the foundation for a new idea or unblock unrelated ideas from coming to the surface.
