Granny Squares, ripples, pillows, sweaters, baby clothes all grew from my crochet needle. Easter chicks, toys, and even a doll were added to the long list. As each took shape, I'd think about the next gift and the one who would receive it. What colors did they like? Would a cozy afghan be their preference or a hat and scarf?
As I craft my stories, I think of the readers. How much tension can they handle? What themes will be meaningful to their lives? Will the ending satisfy them?
Before I used yarn to create something tangible and valued. Now, I use words.
Writers: What are some of the things you do other than writing that reflect your creativity? How has it impacted your storytelling?
Readers: What gives you a profound sense of accomplishment?
