Writing for a purpose (e.g., grant, competition, etc.) is different from writing for a leisure (e.g., diary/daily journal). The first one carries a responsibility, while the latter has less burden. However, this should not make you stop writing because your written products whether it is for a purpose or a leisure, could save one’s life or perhaps have a positive impact on the readers. Thus, please keep writing and polishing your writing skills because great thing could happen when people read your letters, reports, or stories.
Happy writing peeps!
