Writers Are (Often) Introverts, and It’s A Good Thing

Many writers are introverts. We need to be; we spend a lot of time alone, thinking and staring at the computer screen.

In my younger days, my introverted nature bothered me, but only because it bothered other people. If you’re an introvert too, you know that extroverts are unforgiving when you respond with “I’m thinking”, whenever they ask, “What’s wrong?”

I love this article, Caring for Your Introvert – Magazine – The Atlantic. If you’re an introvert too, read it and learn a little more about yourself…:

“If we introverts ran the world, it would no doubt be a calmer, saner, more peaceful sort of place. As Coolidge is supposed to have said, “Don’t you know that four fifths of all our troubles in this life would disappear if we would just sit down and keep still?” (He is also supposed to have said, “If you don’t say anything, you won’t be called on to repeat it.” The only thing a true introvert dislikes more than talking about himself is repeating himself.)”
