If I ever stopped writing, what would I replace it with?

IWSG monthly post

I cannot imagine not being able to write, as it is such an integral part of my life that I’d be totally lost without it. But if I really had to do something else… Probably I would paint. I have been painting since I was knee high to a chair.

I have tried to keep diaries during my life. It was something all the heroines did in the books I read as a child. “Dear diary” and all that. At first I wrote whole pages, explaining what I had done and seen, but after a few weeks my efforts dried up. No explanations, just listing what I had done during the day. When I write my stories, however, it doesn’t feel like an obligation. My imagination is having a party and my fingers just fly on the keyboard. Not sure there is anything I enjoy more than writing.

So if I was cheeky, I’d say that if I couldn’t write, I would dictate. Or at least create stories in my mind.

Are you a writer? What would you do if you couldn't write?
