Creativity

We are so thrilled to have our family from overseas visiting with us this week. Our son-in-law brought us a gorgeous vase made by hand from a solid piece of Korean oak. His sister, Jung Im, took three months to fashion it, and modeled it on a vase from the Choson Dynasty.

Although Jung Im is not a writer, her care and craft made me think of how writers are creative in many ways. Not only do writers write, but many play music, draw, paint, sew, or practice other endeavors.

I crochet blankets, although poorly. My family just has to say, “Oh, look. This is warm and made with love.” But I could never sell my crochet work at an arts fair. I am much more talented with embroidery and crewel work, though, and have given pillowcases, tablecloths, and pictures to friends and family. I don’t engage much in these hobbies now, but I’m still creative. Next week I’ll tell you how.

Your turn:

What creative endeavors do you enjoy other than writing?

Are your characters artistic?

Has your creativity outside of writing inspired your work?
