Writing is about assembling a long sequence of words, be it on any
Storytelling is about putting together characters, plots and sequences
of events.
There are tools specifically for this.

html documents are about layout. The actual text is another matter all

So, I don't see the correlation there myself regarding writing and

PD is development, absolutely. And it can be used for all sorts of
things, though it is mainly targeted at creating live processing for
audio and video. There are others too.Supercollider, CSound. All of
those are specifically targeted at multimedia processing of some kind,
so they are not generic development languages/environments. 
And, therefore, I cannot see the correlation between that and say web
development. But, a lot of people seem to find artistic elements in
coding itself, which I find a little strange myself.
