If you’re a writer, chances are you’re an introvert. Me too.
This is a good thing. It means you’re creative. You find it a challenge to THINK if you’re surrounded by people making noise.
Unfortunately, when you realize that you’re an introvert, you may feel that you can’t sell your writing. That’s not so.
You can sell, but you don’t do it in person, as this article, Introvert freelancer, extravert freelancer | The Freelancery, explains:
“You expand your reach by contributing articles, participating in forums, sending pleasant emails to other freelancers. You’re a writer, contact designers. Send a note to someone whose work you like.
Instead of working the room wearing a smile and name tag, you send a few thoughtful emails to companies or agencies you might like to work with. Send some sketches or doodles. Whatever it is you do.”
Excellent article. Read it if you think you’re too shy to freelance.
You can be as shy as you like, and nevertheless sell your writing.
