#TheIWSG November


It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click HERE. We post the first Wednesday of every month. 
Started by Alex J. Cavanaugh, this hop is all about encouragement. 

The awesome co-hosts for the November 7 posting are: Ellen @ The Cynical SailorAnn V. FriendJQ Rose and Elizabeth Seckman!

IWSG AND CREATIVITY:

This month's optional question is: How has your creativity in life evolved since you began writing?

I think I've become more courageous about my creativity. I love to sing and I've been singing on the praise team at my church. I love photography and I've been playing around with that. I love color and I finally told my husband who is a bit of a "white walls and white trim" kind of guy that I really need color in our house. I'm currently painting over white walls and white trim with blues, a purplish off-white, and a silvery gray. My house finally doesn't feel like an institution to me. 
And, my husband has been surprised to find he likes it. (So, I am conquering the white on white world one person at a time! Mwahaha.)

I'm currently doing NaNoWriMo and I'm definitely pushing through some writing walls with creativity this month.

Are you doing NaNoWriMo?
