Writing is great. It is a creative outlet that allows you to compile personal opinions and feelings, while telling a story that others will enjoy as much as you did writing it. Although writing is fun, I think that there should always be a distance from it. Write a couple hours a day, but there should always be a barrier between it and your life. Don't write 24/7, because your writing will seem repetitive and not thought out. Writing is a thing that should be done everyday if you want to improve, but should be only a small portion of what you do. I love to write, but I don't constantly do it. Most adults don't have writing as a job, so there needs to be a distance from it so they can focus on something else. Same with kids who write. Don't write all the time, but write at a good pace. It is like running; you should keep a steady pace, but don't fall behind or go too fast.
