asked me "What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?"
That's a really easy one: I read.
I read books, my Kindle, LJ's, blogs, fan fiction, and magazines both physical and online. I read packages, instruction manuals, encyclopedias, dictionaries, web comics, newspapers, and online forums and discussion groups. I read anything I can get my hands on. I've been known, when there was nothing else around, to read cereal boxes.
I usually have one book going on my Kindle and a couple of dozen tabs open on my computer, each with a different site on it.
A close second would be making things. I knit, embroider, use both a lucet
and a kumihimo
to make cord, collage, cook, bake, and make my own liqueurs. I'm learning to tablet weave, finger-loop braid
, garden, and make my own household and personal cleaning supplies. I have the bad habit of making something because I think it would be cool to try out, but then either getting bored and leaving it 90% finished or finishing it but not having anything to do with it once I'm done. Or I buy lots of tools and supplies but never do it enough to justify them.
I'm trying to post more often, and am looking for writing prompts. You can help by asking me a question or giving me a topic. Anything you want as long as it's safe for work. No promises I'll actually be inspired by your idea, but I'll do my best.
