What do you create?

At work -- a lot of paperwork.
At home -- baked goods.

mess, yummy food, predictable assignments for uni. Mostly mess though, at the moment!

Cardiff UK

I strive for creating order out of chaos, but every so often I create chaos instead. I compose an occasional bon mot; some fairly literate screeds and diatribes and a great deal of tedious moaning and groaning.

I create my own state of being.

Usually havoc, but in my off-hours I create writings.

Books. Stuff.

Stories. I enjoy creative writing in addition to more journalistic endeavors. I write some poetry as well. I take photographs which I post on the company Web site along with some of the stories I write. I also have a column on there called Valley Bytes - it is new each Wednesday - I have been writing a column for 19 years, so it is good to be back, though not in traditional print. Check it out if you like. (ps. that is my picture o n the left - I took it also).

Cindy, 41

For work - I'm a graphic designer, I do newsletter, brochures, business reply cards, for church I create PPT designs for the services and in my life I created two children.

Primary focus right now is a variety of visuals. In addition to semi-traditional still photography I'm currently also doing multi- layered video art and designing screens for their display.
I picked up a USB recorder over the weekend so I'm also going to try to start doing some audio or at least take a trip back to doing spoken word. Occasionally I'll check out the Boston/Cambridge poetry scene. It seems to be getting better now that it's becoming less of a fashion thing.

Mostly I create programs. Sometimes I create a cheery atmosphere. I occasionally create amusement and bemusement as I strive to maintain my reputation for being an oddball IT person. I aim to create tolerance for people who are different by showing that different is not necessarily bad.

Cathie, 53
Novi, MI USA

Probably best at creating spaces for other folks to collaborate and work in. Like to think I create a sense of support and encouragement as well.

Chaos, database applications, cookies with my grandchildren.

Jane, 63
West Linn, OR USA

A couple websites, some waste, oxygen which is good for the plants, and a mix of humor and frustration for those around me.

i create order. when there is trouble i usually straighten everything out and point out the clear ways to fix things. i am like the common sense in a room full of chaos and stupidity.if someone needs a solution or way out of something i am the one.

i am officially the problem solver.

i create understanding, comprehension. i am by nature a teacher. its what i do. its what i have to do. i cant be happy if i dont teach. even if i dont know it myself, i can learn it and explain it so that the person with the problem will understand it.

my true calling.

i create the best cd mixes around. i love all kinds of music so on a cd i will have just about every kind of music. i have a gift for putting the songs together in a order that will have a complete flow to it. like the different genres of music naturally flow together. i can do mixes
for people depending on what type of person they are. there will be music that they would normally hate but just because of the flow of the cd entirely they will love it.

music just goes with, makes, or changes a persons mood. really therapeutic.

i can create really good scenarios, stories, lies, movies, etc. only problem is it is hard for me to write them down in detail. its like my mind moves too fast. i dont do poetry or songs because of the rhyming and i dont stop with those things so i usually end up with prose. stories i think of arent written down because of the wording. i usually am very indecisive when it comes to writting. it has always been a problem. never satisfied with the way it comes out. i try not to
care so much but i cant help it. journals, diaries, and this site thing is a little different. its like blurting things out without caring what it is or who hears it. but i still find ways to censor my thoughts.

one of days these i will have to chance to let some of this stuff out completely. it will be totally great and devastating.

this was good question. it has me really thinking. it will take too long to figure out some more things. so i am stopping here.
