What have you practiced for the longest?

What with Gamboling coming back, I’m mindful that I’ve been doing Gamboling on and off for about 9 years now*. I have however been writing since I was a kid. Katherine knits, some people play the piano. I learned to play the piano when I was a kid, I studied for seven years, and now all of these years later all I can play is Three Blind Mice – badly.

I think I’ll have to pick writing. You could easily say that I am a terrible writer, which people might think would be upsetting for me considering how long I’ve spent on it. But the key difference with writing more than anything else I’ve done is that I clearly need to do it. So I may as well try and improve along the way – and there’s a long way to go.

What have you practiced for the longest?

    I have been practising to be a good person. It’s an ongoing project that one. 🙂

    I always practise swimming to get better but I just enjoy being in the water and relaxing with lengths anyways. Then there’s writing too as I’ve said not too long ago as well as my drawing too. General creativity is my biggest practise over a long term time I’d say.

  2. General creativity seems like one of the most admirable things to do that there are.

  3. Oh and being a good person of course.

  4. I think, as you can probably guess, writing is the thing I’ve practiced the longest too, although it comes close with playing guitar (which I no longer do as much). I think I actually started writing lyrics to songs before I learnt to play the guitar. I think LukehMuse has hit the nail on the head with creativity though – before writing I was always making up stories in my head etc. Gill would argue that she’s not creative and wouldn’t be able to write anything, but I think everyone is to a certain degree (cookery, for example).

  5. […] response to my question about what have you practiced the most we had some great comments from Lukeh and Nick. […]
