Why is writing important?

Do you think writing is a healthy part of the average life style? I enjoy putting my thoughts and imagination down, creating a new world i can escape to. I believe it's healthy because sometimes you can create a similar situation to your own life and writing can help relieve loads of stress. What would you mostly write for? To get paid? Or just for the enjoyment?

I write for the sake of writing. I write for pleasure, for stress, for money, for thoughts, for anything in the world. It's a way of expressing what you cannot express out loud. It's a way of pulling yourself from reality and divulging yourself into imagination and coming out with a better understanding about yourself. To me, it's very healthy. It's made me forget my anger (which I apparently had alot of when I was younger). It's made me happier.

Peronally for me, writing is important because it gives me the opportunity to sort through some of the things that I might not be able to talk to others about. It also give me an outlet for my creativity, I love anything out of the ordinary, fantasy and horror wise, and I love creating different places in my stories. I think that writing is a very important part of my life, it is a way for me to share my thoughts without having anyone critize them.
