IWSG monthly post

Writers often have other creative outlets as well.

I have been painting since I was a child. And I've had my art shown in Finland, UK and US. I used to paint mostly horses ("Doesn't it tickle them?" my brother dearest inquired) and pet portraits.

Then I started my Egyptology studies and painted ancient Egyptian subjects. You can see some of my paintings on my other websites and

An on another note - literally - we have a little singing group... Wouldn't call it exactly a choir, but something along those lines. I'm soprano. We perform every year at a local old people's home before Christmas when they arrange a Christmas event for lonely old people. If I haven't reached the Christmas spirit before that, this event sure does the trick. We sing traditional Christmas carols ("Between the Ox and the Grey Ass", "Lo how a rose e'er blooming", and Finnish Christmas carols).

We sing at other events too and practise weekly before our planned performances. It is a great way to get off the computer  and meet friends. And besides - singing is fun.

Music had an important role in my writing too - I listen to (mostly) instrumental music when I write. The soundtracks of Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit are my favourites. Classical music too. The music blocks away the noises around me and makes it easier to enter the "zone".

Are you a writer? What other creative outlets do you have?
