#IWSG It’s Wednesday!

This post was written for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group where we share our encouragement or insecurities on the first Wednesday of the month, to join the group or find out more click here.

OPTIONAL #IWSG DAY QUESTION:

What are five objects we’d find in your writing space?

1.Coffee or Diet Coke depending on the time of day.

2. My fountain pen and whatever other pen strikes my fancy – there is always a pile

3. Stack of books

4. Composition notebook and computer – I actually have been gravitating toward the Chromebook. It is nice for drafting and a nice size for my little baby hands! It also fits nicely in my purse.

5. Phone – easy for timers and research. I do not always like to click back and forth from webpages to my WIP

What is in your writing space? Are there special things you like to have around you when you write?

December Writing Goals


For December I will continue to write everyday.

I will submit at least 2 stories.

I will blog and lightly participate in BLOGMAS.

I am creating a writing challenge for myself and others who want to join in on my blog.

I am signed up for an editing class at the end of the month and will fully participate in that class!

My Evolution of Creativity

 

It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! We post the first Wednesday of every month. Our purpose is to share and encourage. I hope my post does just that.

Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions often offer advice or insight through personal experience. This month the question is:

November 7 question – How has your creativity in life evolved since you began writing?

 

I have always been a writer and interested in creativity. I think that I had a narrow definition of what creative meant even after all the creativity books I have read over my lifetime.

As I have lived I have opened up my perspective of what creative is and what it looks like. It doesn’t have to be a free spirit artist person – but it can be.

My evolution has expanded my thinking to knowing creativity is everywhere.

  • It is in the lines that come to my head for writing that I now write down.
  • It is the doodle I draw in my bullet journal.
  • It is the new recipe I try for dinner.
  • It is in the new thinking pattern I have from reading other blogs and other writers that fuel my own ideas.
  • It is the walk I take among the trees and the whispers I hear from them to fill my heart.
  • It is the way I look at paintings and short stories and novels and appreciate them and then how to unpack the elements to get inside the artist’s mind to learn something for myself.

Creativity is a beautiful lens to look through every day!
