It's the first Wednesday of the month, so you know what that means ... it's time for another Insecure Writer's Support Group meeting. IWSG was created by the awesome ninja captain Alex J. Cavanaugh, and you can find out the other members of the group here.
This year's A to Z Challenge theme is: All About Foxwick.
C is for ... Creativity
One of the best things about being a writer is being creative. I get to expand my creativity muscle and exercise my imagination. Something should get exercise, right? One of the reasons I enjoy my Foxwick world so much is because there is so much creativity in it. I’m the goddess of this world. I can build lands, create creatures and people, and control their lives—when the characters let me, that is.
It can also be worrisome creating a new world. What if the readers don’t like the world? What if it is too weird? Too mundane? What if I forget something or decide to change it mid-way through the story and forget to reflect that in the previous stories? I keep notes and update information that changes through the course of writing. But there are those worries.
In the end, the risk is worth the reward.
How do you flex your creativity muscle?
