Miscellaneous Monday Morning #5: How Does Writing Affect Your Brain

mondayCalvinandHobbes

Happy Monday morning dear readers! As always, I hope that the first day back at work is going as easily as possible and that you aren’t too unhappy about the weekend being a full five days away yet again (just a little bit unhappy).

To briefly distract you from all those pressing Monday obligations, here is a fascinating infographic about the effect writing has on your brain (spoiler: it’s good for your brain). It also explains why a story detailing facts is more memorable than just listing said facts, and why clichés undermine this, so be sure to check out the whole thing. Happy Monday, and remember, even though the weekend is five days away, five days really isn’t that long in the grand scheme of things!
