This chain was started by Kate. She asked:
Curses, you've been cursed! You can write no longer. The story well has run dry, and you can't even remember how to type. Now what do you do? Where do you channel your creative energies? And to what lengths would you go to break the curse?
That is a cruel, cruel curse. Though some days I think it might be a blessing. I have my suspicions that writing actually kills the sane brain cells and causes the crazy ones to multiply. Rapidly. ;)
Now, it doesn't say anything about my desire to write disappearing, so I'd probably keep trying. I feel like I'm deluding myself most of the time anyway, so I don't know that it would really be that different.
But if my desire to write just faded away, I have plenty of discarded creative outlets to fall back on.
There's sewing, which I still do once in a while. Sometimes I need a break from writing. You know, to rebuild those sane brain cells.
This is my latest project, a camping quilt I made for my husband for Father's Day. Yes, this is totally a bragging photo. It turned out exactly as I wanted it to. :)
Or there's digital scrapbooking. Along that same line, I'd love to go back to school to learn graphic design and web design.
And someday I want to learn blacksmithing and welding and all kinds of metalworking so I can be the crazy lady with all the metal sculptures in her front yard. ;)
What about all of you? Where would you channel your creative energy if you couldn't write anymore?
