#IWSG What Would You Do?

 It's Insecure Writer's support Group Day!

If you'd like to join, go HERE

Thanks to our our founder and host, Alex Cavanaugh, and this month's co-hosts,  Patrcia Josephine, Diedre Knight, Olga Godim, J. Lenni Dorner, and Cathrina Constantine!

This month's optional question is: 

If you ever stop writing, what would you replace it with?

I wouldn't have a problem keeping busy. As it is, I have lots of things I want to do that I put to the side so I can write. So in no order in particular:

  • Travel more (yeah, I could do this now, but...)
  • Plan and take more hikes and day trips
  • Make hiking sticks (I made 2 years ago, and am working on another one now)
  • Kayaking (I don't have one, but I want one...)
  • Archery (Don't have bows or arrows)
  • Knitting (learn how to. I have some needles and yarn and I'm sure YouTube could show me how!)
  • Baking (learn how to, LOL. I recently took up making sourdough bread)
  • Painting (Not a painter, but I love Impressionism--I think I could do it! YouTube has videos!)
  • Paint Rocks (again, not a painter but...)
  • Gardening (I wish my backyard wasn't so hilly!)
  • Learn graphic design
  • Become a better photographer (I actually have dark room equipment)
  • Learn how to create mini films
  • Pottery (I've had a potter's wheel forever, but don't use it. I took 2 semesters in college. I'm so glad I took these classes for credit only. LOL.). 
  • Buy a telescope and stargaze
  • Study the bible (I have a study bible but getting through the Old Testament is seriously testing me!)
Having listed all these things, I'm really not very creatively talented, but I think I could be okay with a little practice. I have so many interests, and so little time!

What would you do if you quit writing?
Do you make time for other creative endeavors? 
What are your hobbies?
