It's the first Wednesday of the month, and you all know what that means! It's time for another meeting of The Insecure Writer's Support Group. Our leader Alex J. Cavanaugh has rounded up another great group of co-hosts: Raimey Gallant, Natalie Aguirre, CV Grehan, and Michelle Wallace.
Be sure to check out the IWSG website for support and lots of great resources for writers!
First of all, I'd like to encourage you to check out Michelle Wallace's post today. She kindly offered to host a piece talking about the benefits of participating in Write...Edit...Publish. If you'd like to read about 1o reasons why you should join WEP, you should check that out!
Secondly, I have a post up on the IWSG Anthologies website today. There I talk a bit about the theme for the upcoming anthology Masquerade: Oddly Suited.
Now let's move on to the question of the day.
The optional question for February is: Besides writing what other creative outlets do you have?
I've been doing a lot of jigsaw puzzles lately. I find it relaxing, and I enjoy watching the picture come together as I work on it. Doing puzzles with a toddler in the house has been challenging. I have to keep them out of reach if I don't want to end up with missing pieces.
I also like making bath bombs. While mine aren't perfect (Iowa's fluctuations between extremely humid and dry air make it hard to perfect the recipe to avoid cracking), it's still fun to get creative with colors and scents.
By the way, the picture does not feature any bath bombs I made. This is merely a depiction of what I wish mine looked like.
How about you? What creative outlets do you have other than writing?
