Writing can have similar effects on the mind as meditation. Your breathing slows down and you get in a "zone" where words flow freely from your head. This can make stream of consciousness writing a very effective method for de-stressing.

This reminds me of what Natalie Goldberg's Roshi told her about writing being a form of meditation for her.

Thanks for the link, libra.
