Frequently Asked Question: Besides writing what other creative outlets do you have?

insecure2bwriters2bsupport2bgroup2bbadgeToday’s question comes from the Insecure Writer’s Support Group.

I enjoy attending theatre, reading, travel and, believe it or not, learning new languages. I speak three dialects of French (European, Louisiana/Cajun, and Kouri-Vini/Louisiana Creole), Spanish, Italian, and smatterings of German and Portuguese.

I recently took the Via Character Survey (it’s free, you should do it). My greatest strength, what really “floats my boat,” is Love of Learning. According to Via, Love of Learning falls into the general category of Wisdom, which is the way we acquire and use knowledge. What this means (among other things) is that I enjoy learning new things just for the sake of doing it. I admit to being a little surprised by this outcome, but when I stopped to consider it, it really is true.

If you take the Via Character Survey, please share your top strength. I’m curious!

  1. I admire your skill with new languages. I took Spanish through high school and college but since I don’t use it I’ve forgotten most of it 😦
    My creative outlets are reading, miniature dollhouses, jigsaw puzzles and coloring.


  2. Thank you so kindly for all your good writings about yourself, and I enjoyed it immensely. I am primarily a nonfiction writer, though I do somewhat lean toward writing for children. I enjoyed taking the test and I too fell lower in creativity than I expected and I am an artist, but I can understand why because I have had and still have PTSD and have lost so much of the things I used to do (fiber arts, mixed media and other painting and art, writing). I am getting mine back some with posting on my blog regularly. That has opened a lot of doors for me. I too enjoy reading a lot, and many different types of writing. I am very glad to have made your acquaintance. Thank you again.
