We writers are an eclectic group. Our creativity spills out through the written word but also can manifest in other ways. In addition to writing, some of us paint, knit, make jewelry, craft handmade cards, sculpt, crochet, make music, and do so many other things. Sometimes, we’re able achieve a measure of success in these areas that allows us to sell our products and make a profit.
As you know, Angela and I love writers and want to support them, and we know many of you do too. So with Christmas coming, we’ve prepared something special to help with your shopping: a list of products created by fellow writers. If you’ve got people to buy for and you like the idea of supporting writers, nab two birds with one grab. Click on the images to see what these talented creatives have available for purchase.
