    This is another very interesting article, Chitrangada. I have been writing on Hubpages as long as you also, and I think I write for the same reasons you write. I think those reasons are valid and important. I love to write also, and I like to help people with my medical articles. I enjoyed reading your article.

    Thank you for posting Chitrangada's article Ravi.

    It is amazing what can be learned when doing research for what we write.  The perpetual student in me likes that aspect in addition to the other reasons you cited, Chitrangada.  Thanks for sharing her thoughts with us, Ravi.

      Hello Peggy!
      Yes, you have made an important point. We are constantly learning, by means of the process of writing. Isn’t it amazing, that the desire to learn, to know more, irrespective of our age, is always there!
      Thank you so much, for always supporting my work. I appreciate it a lot.

    I always hate it when others question why I write, but then there are others who seem so amazed that I'm a writer.

    It's like I've unlocked a secret place in their world.

    That's why I write.  To touch & connect with others across the universe.
    Not only that, but to release these pent up thoughts before my brain explodes.

    I love how you say
    The main reason for writing is to reflect, to communicate with others, to inform, to stimulate the readers to think, or understand, to help others, with your own experiences

    Great write.

      Thank you so much Brenda, for your thoughtful comments.
      As always, I love your reviews. This is an important part of the writing process. Isn’t it amazing, that both the writer and the reader gain so much, by this exchange of views!
      I am glad that all the fellow writers can relate to the questions posed, and the possible answers, in this article. I understand, that there can be many more variations of the same.
      Thank you for your kind words of encouragement and appreciation.
      My best wishes, always!

    You've created an interesting article about writing, Chitrangada, I love the reasons for writing that you list. I especially liked one of them because it applies to me, too. I find it easier to describe my feelings (and my thoughts and ideas) on a piece of paper or a computer screen than to describe them in spoken words.

      Hi Linda!
      I am glad that you can relate to the thoughts expressed in the article.
      Same here— It’s easier for me to express in writing, rather than speaking it out.
      Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts. Much appreciated.

    A very interesting article. Di, Chitra, I like the reasons you listed for why you write. I can relate to many of the responses you listed. I think I write because it makes me feel lighter. It helps me deal with a variety of scenarios. I believe that writing is easier than speaking. In my case, even doodling can help, but what if someone asks why you doodle? A writer's reason for writing is similar to a teacher's reason for teaching, a student's motivation for learning, or an athlete's motivation for participating in sports. I don't understand why people criticize writers while ignoring the fact that their words help many people feel and relax.Thanks for writing this article and also thanks to Ravi for sharing it.
    Many Blessings to both of you!

      Hello Misbah!
      Thank you for reading the article and sharing your thoughts. In fact, you have added more value to it, by adding some interesting reasons for writing.
      Doodling is a creative art, and not everyone can do it. So, you are privileged to have this talent.
      Appreciate your kind words and support.
      Thank you and enjoy the weekend.
