Award-Winning Author Carla DuPont Shares Her 5 Reasons Why You Need To Write Right Now

Despite the growing rise of visual media images and video gaining popularity, writing remains an integral medium for sharing information, leaving a physical imprint of your consciousness that can stand the test of time being read and felt by others, sometimes even years later. Writing and reading engages and stimulates parts of your brain that visual media can’t. Instead of just mindlessly consuming flashy stimuli, you take the words into your mind and interpret the message of the author, finding your own unique meaning in the process.


Carla DuPont is a passionate advocate for the impact writing can have on your life. As the award-winning author of the Sergeant Knight series, Carla deeply understands how the power and intention of writing work to create worlds, share feelings, and convey important messages. When she’s not developing the steamy, sensual world of Sgt. Knight, Carla is still deeply ingrained in the writing world; operating as a celebrity ghostwriter and an author coach. Carla runs a full-service literary consultancy firm that stands as an established one-stop shop for all things writing. She helps people bring their visions to life with ghostwriting and co-authoring services, enables these ideas flourish with editing and self-publishing packages, as well as runs coaching sessions and workshops that nurture the creative writer within you to grow.


With writing serving as the center of her life, Carla has experienced first-hand the impact the practice of writing can have on your life, and advocates it to anyone searching for something more in their lives. Please enjoy Carla’s 5 best reasons why you should start writing today!


Emotional Healing

Writing can be a tool of liberation! With our busy lives, we often have too many thoughts bumping around in our heads and crowding our minds. This can easily become overwhelming. Writing your thoughts and feelings down can help to release you from the emotional stressors you’re dealing with, the things that you don’t get to say, or the thoughts that are clogging up your mind.


Exploring Your Creativity

Writing is a powerful medium for expression that can be used by anyone. Trying something new like exploring storytelling or poetry can be an incredible way to alter your perspective; the way you think about things, and form new neural pathways that will help you conceptualize ideas and express yourself better. Do you have thoughts on certain themes or ideas that keep coming back? Write it down and express it! Who knows what fun, thoughtful magic you’ve got bottled up inside just waiting to come out!


Sharing Knowledge

Just like the idea of how teaching helps you to learn better yourself, writing down information can help you structure ideas that could be useful to others. With some writing and editing, a rough stream of thoughts can be refined into a truly useful, educational piece of information like a blog, paper, or speech. Writing things down helps you to organize and communicate ideas effectively so your message hits its intended audience purposefully!


Displaying Your Expertise

What are you really good at? What if I told you that there was someone who would love to hear about your wisdom on a subject, or your journey to obtaining your expertise? Writing can be a vessel to establish yourself as an expert in your field, and you could even sell books and e-books on your chosen field that people looking to better themselves would pay to read. With the rise of e-books and digital stores, it’s never been easier to connect your ideas with an audience willing to pay for them. Writing a book isn’t reserved for old professors or famous people. If you have an idea you’re passionate about, you could share that with the world through the power of writing!


Empowering Others

Just like displaying your expertise, your perspective, experiences, and writing can be used to uplift and empower others to overcome their troubles, or to stand up to their current circumstances. One of my clients recently wrote the book “View Through My Lens: Being A Black Woman Pursuing A Degree In STEM” which is a perfect example of how someone sharing their unique perspective can serve as a compelling insight for others!
