For the past few weeks, I have started to write about random things in an attempt to improve my language skills.
I figured maybe writing on forums(all types) about my own problems would help me to improve my English as well as getting solutions.
Two days back, when I was writing on a forum meant for people seeking emotional support, and I was writing something related to a dear one, I found that even though I know exactly what to write and the things I need to mention, I found it so immensely distressful to write a lengthy post that I decided to omit a few points and submit whatever I had written so far.
I was not able to jot down my thoughts because I was not able to come up with proper and suitable words for it. I feel like I understand every word I read but when I want to use them in my own context, my mind goes blank.
I don't have the habit of writing this much ever, except when I was back in secondary school, I used to mug up essays which I knew, beforehand, would be asked in the exams.
I was surprised that I had written a three page article of around 1000 words (I checked it in MS-Word) on my own in one go.
I feel that whatever I had written makes me sound pretty restless and as if I am trying really hard to express myself and it might even be irritating to the readers, I am not sure.
- Is this feeling of uneasiness prevalent in the beginners?
- Whenever I feel this way, should I continue and ignore my inner voice which keeps on insisting to take a break?
- I have read that increasing the physical load gradually on a daily basis improve your muscle strength and tolerance. Is this true for our mind too?
- Does stressing the brain and pushing it to the limits in any way help me to improve my vocabulary and writing power?
