Lately, I’ve been learning to crochet. I don’t know why, but I just had the urge to try it. So, it got me to thinking, are you creative in other ways than writing? I’ve always heard that creative people usually enjoy many different types of art forms. Although, I do enjoy many different types of arts, I can’t say that I’m really good at them. I’ve always enjoyed doing crafts of different forms, but I’ve never excelled in any of them. They were okay, but not great.
I know there are lots of people out there who both write and draw. I wish I had that talent, but unfortunately, I don’t. At least, I don’t think I do. I’ve never had any art classes, so I couldn’t really say that. But, I do know I don’t have a natural talent for it. What pictures I have tried drawing in the past haven’t been that great. I have a nephew that can draw anything, and he’s never had any real art classes. That’s what I consider natural talent. If you can do it without even being taught, then you’re born with it.
The same goes for singers and actors. Many of them work in both fields. Some of them even write their own songs or plays. The different types of art work synergistically together. That’s great! If you’re capable of doing those things, it’s wonderful. And I’m completely jealous. :D
Personally, I love music. I would give anything to be able to sing. That will never be one of my talents, I’m afraid. I’ll have to stick with singing along with the radio, which I do on a regular basis. It’s one of my favorite pastimes. One day, I’d love to learn how to write songs. Of course, I’ll have to learn how to play an instrument and read music, but you never know. Maybe someday I’ll accomplish that goal. But, for now, I’ll have to stick with learning to crochet. One thing at a time.
So, how about you? Do you enjoy more than one creative activity? Are you a writer and singer, or artist, or…? Leave a comment and let me know. I’d love to hear what you enjoy.
