Being an Introvert

It’s estimated roughly 75% of people are extroverts (although the image at left says its higher for writers). That makes us the majority. Thus, introverts feel a bit put upon. It’s an extrovert’s world. There are tests, but you pretty much know. Do crowds energize you or drain you? How do you feel when you’re…

When I was younger, I read a book on being an introvert because that was the person I thought I was.  I found out that my energy comes from within and the book was absolutely right.  I felt like I was still outgoing but in a different way.  I loved to socialize but in a different way.  I didn’t like being the centre of attention or even noticed, but I liked being with other people and being a part of something bigger than myself – just in an introverted way.  With that understanding, I got to like myself better.  If you are an introvert or not even sure, you should read a book about being an introvert.  It may help you to understand the concept better.

For Writers: Point of View — Bob Mayer

Point of view is perhaps the hardest thing to teach about writing fiction. Ultimately it’s your voice as an author. Many of us can’t even agree on the right terms to use.
