Pardon me, Mike: *definitely* inspired awesomeness. ;)
Actually, by listing map making and writing I meant more to wonder whether, in any of the books' *pictorial* illustrations, we see any of the characters specifically using either their left or right hand in a way that might identify handedness. Not that it would settle the matter --IIRC that era was known for training "lefties" to work with their right hand, some tasks effectively demand right-handedness from the nature of equipment (e.g. using a sextant), and ambidexterity could throw off any certainty.
I haven't seen a connection between left-handedness and creativity myself, in any of the examples I have known personally, but I won't contradict you. In fact, I dimly remember studies that would back you up in that assertion.
