I feel wonderful. I've been wanting to write for a long time now and finally found a place where i could. Writing for me is liberating and enriching, and i'm sure it is the same for everyone who shares this passion. How important is writing for you and how has it changed your life?

@MALUSE Hi,I have an interesting theory that i would like to share with you. Writing random stuff anywhere wouldn't have any impact on ones intellect or knowledge. On the other hand, serious writing (discussion) could involve thinking and searching our brain for better ways of expression. Now, how does that effect one's intellect? 1) Deeper thinking will enable us to comprehend everything related to any subject, it helps us understand that subject as a whole. 2) When one puts out a well thought out article, he/she could expect his/her views to be both appreciated and challenged by equally good or better thoughts. Now this makes us rethink, to understand the challenging idea. 3) When one understands the challengers idea ,it means one also understands the other's way of thinking,or at the least tries to, thus we gain a new perspective. Consistent appreciation and challenge over time on a variety of subjects would take our understanding on things to a new level and this equates to experience with information. 4) Experience with information gives us knowledge which sticks with us forever, and knowledge molds our thoughts and actions better. 5)Intellect is after all, way of using our knowledge. Well, just my take on this. Would greatly appreciate your view.

It's always been important to me to write, but I've never felt the need to make all my writings public. I think writing is a healthy outlet but there are times I want to be private about it, other times when I like to share things. This site is a good way to share things.
