Writing is a must! Without that escape of putting pen to paper the voices in my head would take over. Sounds like enough creativity for a single person, right? Not! I can’t speak for other writers, but the creativity bug doesn’t stop biting for me with just conjuring up characters or the fantastical worlds they live in. I have several creative vices that I dabble in aside from reading and writing. Photography is very high on my list of creative hobbies! I bought my first camera body and lens at nineteen years old, and I fell in love.
I’ve had to use some self-discipline! The key to being successful in anything, especially life is balance. For me the list goes in this order: Family first, writing/reading, and then all those other creative endeavors are sprinkled into the mix after.
