Yes, it can be frightening to face the blank page. Yes, your life is busy and sometimes just watching TV can feel more enticing than getting to work on your own computer screen. But writing -- whether it's poetry, fiction, essays, memoir, what have you -- is good for you.
Creative work that engages mind and memory literally lights up your brain. According to the neuroscientist writing in this Psychology Today article, "creative writing is one of the best exercises we can do for aging brain."
