Why writing is good for you

One of my favorite books is Anne Lamott's fab book about writing and life, "Bird by Bird". She describes writing as a voyage of discovery where the author discovers or creates his own thoughts by articulating them and then rewriting them.

The title is deceptive, but harkens back thirty years before when her older brother had procrastinated over writing a paper due the next day and was hysterical over the immense chore. Then his father put his arm around his son and said, "Bird by bird, buddy, Just take it bird by bird."

Good advice for life and writing.
