    I write just for the pure enjoyment of creating something with words.
    Writing demands "thought."
    Thought is exercise for "neurons" just sitting there waiting to be challenged!
    It's just my opinion. I think, just like any other organ, the brain needs exercise to stay healthy and functional.
    Writing and the thought necessary to paint a picture in words, may just be, what is necessary to stave off premature dementia/alzheimers.
    Of course no one reads my stuff, so hell, I, selfishly, re-read 'em and appreciate my ability for expression.
    I am, no doubt, an egoist.
    Your thoughts? (not on my egoism...lol)

      Hey Qwark,

      Writing is expression of thoughts. It's the action, for which, make the thoughts a reality for most. If the thought stays in your head, then it remains just that...a thought and nothing more.

      It isn't until the words are created, either by writing it down or voicing out loud, that make the thoughts a reality.

      I think you're an extremely intelligent person, with a slightly warped sense of humor, kind a like Marine(no offense intended).

      Do you have an ego? Sure, everyone displays theirs everyday. There are two things that make people with egos dangerous...(a) they cannot ever seem to see the line they shouldn't cross and (b) are ignorant in more ways than one can count on one hand.

      You're just fine the way you are. smile lol

    Nothing like a healthy ego eh? lol wink

    I agree that the mind is like every muscle, it needs to be worked to stay strong. The challenge of imparting knowledge or understanding on just about any topic is invigorating mentally speaking. I am not even sure it matters what it is that you want to get across, from why to buy this, a crazy story from my childhood to a how to article the effort of conveying what is on your mind should keep you sharp as well as improve your skills in writing!

    I have just started writing in a creative way..never had much interest in it really. I found Hubpages kind of by accident and just liked coming to read. Then one day I figured I would try to write something and found it to be fun! I am not a "writer"  by any means but I try..lol  I am not here to make money or to impress anyone, which my writing could never do anyway lol
    I just have fun here!!

    I enjoy writing..since I am having a huge block on my writing outside of hubpages (meaning on my stories sad ) I am writing on here a lot more..
    I'm hoping that I get inspired to write again but so far...nothing *sigh*

    I write hubs to: share my experiences and knowledge, learn while researching for the hub and make residual income.

    I liked writing in school, but didn't even give it a thought as to using it as a career.  As times are a bit tough at the moment with limited income and a young child I started looking for other ways to bring in some money and came across HubPages in a search.  I read a lot of hubs to start with, and liked what I read, which then inspired me to try my luck.  I have not had much success on the earning front but have renewed my acquaintance with writing and am enjoying all that HubPages offers.
