The words in front of you start to make more sense, stopping to think of the meaning of a word, making sure the sentence conveys exactly what you mean is a great excercise in putting your thoughts in order.
It's also good to look back at, to see what worked and what didn't. You might notice a pattern of behaviour- good or bad - that you might not have otherwise noticed.
Personally I never found it triggering to a bad extent and the good certainly outweighed the bad.
And you do have a talent with words, try it- you might like it.
