I like to think that writing is a form of cleansing. When you don’t write but still well up all of that emotion, you can actually do some serious damage to yourself. I think that writing might be perceived as Unhealthy when you delve into the minds of unhealthy characters. In order to write believable material, you need to be able to fully immerse yourself in the story.
That’s when writing becomes unhealthy. When you immerse yourself in the mind of someone who struggles. All good stories include conflict, no? ;)
Thanks for writing this refreshing point of view on writing! :)
