When RPing or SGing, there’s an element of influence on you as a writer. It can be in the skills you learn, the comfort you gain with differing ideas, exposure to further diversity in characters, plots, and writing styles, or even influences in your own motivation, inspiration, and preferences in writing. RPing and SGing can open your mind to so much in your writing, through things you wouldn’t have thought of, known about, or been comfortable with. RPing and SGing can even impact your confidence in aspects of your writing to push you out of your comfort zone and into something new and great.
