depends on what kinda writing you're talking about...
do you mean just writing in general? like how im writing (well typing) this message?
cause the answer to that one would be communication......

on the other hand, if you mean "writing" , like poetry, and stories....that would have many different answers from different people.
for me, it's a release....i write poetry as a creative vent for my life.

Short Answer: Well writing has a meaning because we give it meaning.

Really long answer: How language first started, however, is unclear. Indo-European is the first language and it influenced Greek, Latin and Gothic languages. Grimms(Yes the fairy tale guy) law of sound shift also contributes to the development of speech and writing. His theory was that consonants displace one another over time.

Geography and agriculture was a basis for vocabulary. The vocabulary does, however, fit the landscape of eastern Anatolia and Transcaucasia, backed by the Kov Kaz Mountains. There were words for "mountain oak,","willow" or"white willow," "yew," "pine" or"fir," "heather" and "moss." Moreover, the language has words for animals that are alien to northern Europe: "leopard," "lion," "monkey" and "elephant."

Language also changes depending on the class that uses it. When William The Bastard, later renamed the Conqueror, French became the language of the nobles and the peasents still spoke English. The English languge ( which is Latin in most vocabulary, but Germanic in syntax) changed which is why there are no inflectional endings. For Example, ,Words in spanish end in a or o signifying gender yat there are non in the English language.

Some people, such as Fodor or Chompsky, believe that language is developed through interfacing with individual representations. That there is something in the brain that develops and articulates grammar and syntax.
However, some people may confuse language with thinking. Afterall, when you think it is in a language. However ideas must be formed before language was created which means babies and mutes, although lacking a language, are able to form thoughts. Jane Goudall's study with chimps revealed that they form an understanding of concepts such as strategic plans.

While it is very possible to think without a language, it is harder to convey your thoughts to others. However, how language was first thought up and spread is not known, but it would appear that people use the same style of writing and the brain may have some specialized function which allows people to develop and think up the sty;e of writing: grammer syntax and vocabulary
