No, seriously. This is a place for writers to encourage and protect each other. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month and encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. We offer commiseration and advice, especially in times of need.
The fabulous and talented co-hosts today for February 6 posting of the IWSG are Raimey Gallant, Natalie Aguirre, CV Grehan, and Michelle Wallace! Click on their links to check them out.
Kurt Cobain was a painter and a sculptor. Leonardo da Vinci did freakin everything. Jean-Jacques Russo was known for his operas before he became a famous philosopher. I feel close to certain our alternate "creative selves" are ultimately what make us stand out as writers.
My alternative creative outlets:
I love to ski.
Stalk my favorite authors.

Did you know Stephen King is in a band? That Chuck Palahniuk kick started the Cacophony Society, and even used it as the prototype for Project Mayhem in Fight Club?
The Cacophony Society turned into Burning Man and Santa Con. Chuck has profusely apologized for both ever since.
What are your alternative creative outlets? Please answer in the comments below. I always return comments unless a house drops on me, or I'm abducted by aliens.
