    That's cool! To date, I've been immature in my non-technical writing in that I don't particularly care if the recipient(s) like what I've written or not. Like doing a reading or playing a song on a brightly lit stage where you can't see the audience.

    Thanks for sharing that, LisaKoski! I used to be shy and would also write to "voice what would have otherwise remained unspoken" (great line). Now I'm not shy: I say what I feel, write what I want/believe, and accept upsetting some people on the way.

    I like that aspect of things, too: the ability to edit until you get it right, rather than speech where you can't change it once you've said it: it's out there!

    Ha ha ha! I think philosophers of many kinds would suggest that it is the process and the journey and not so much the result that will get you where you want to go. Good (and fun) answer, WalterPoon!

    Great answer, kj force! (As usual.) You're right that writing is an outlet and an empowering force--probably in everyone's case (correct me if I'm wrong). Learning from each other is the best, too! Cheers!

    I didn't realize it until you said it, but that's how I'm starting to feel, too. Good answer!! Thanks!

    AMAZING THINKER, you've brought a new aspect to this question: people write to get/keep their thoughts in order. Think of speeches written for/by important people, for example: clarifying thoughts and perhaps even COMPLETING thoughts through writing.

    Great answer! It's been so long since I've written pure fiction that I'd forgotten that. I love how you can magically make things appear that a character needs, too, by going back and writing it in earlier in the story. Thanks, Samith Jhon! :-)

    I can totally relate to what you are saying! These are all great benefits of writing--the feedback is helpful, too. Almost nobody posts anything negative about a person's writing, so if you're looking for self-affirmation, you've arrived! Cheers!
