A big thank you to everyone for the support on my post yesterday. I am not feeling quite so overwhelmed today, I even took a picture with the new camera, though I didn’t leave the house to go get my new glasses and I don’t care.
A special thanks to writerjenn who pointed me to Shrinking Violets Promotions. Lots of good reading there. And this wonderful quote in their sidebar:
Hardly anybody ever writes anything nice about introverts. Extroverts rule.
This is rather odd when you realise that about nineteen writers out of twenty
are introverts. We are being taught to be ashamed of not being ‘outgoing’.
But a writer’s job is ingoing. –Ursula K. LeGuin
I love that they make the distinction, many times, of the difference between being introverted and being shy. It’s all about where you get your energy.
I’m going back to my quiet place to store up some more go-juice. In the mean-time, don’t forget it is Thursday and time for poems of 15 words or less.
