I feel that I’m lacking a community.
I’m an introvert. A major introvert. In an ideal world (i.e. not having to work a traditional job), I’d probably spend 90% of my time alone, knowing that’s what I need to feel my best. My world isn’t ideal though, and I do work a traditional job surrounded by and interacting with people all day, so in the evenings and on weekends I usually want nothing to do with anyone.
I have to force myself to socialize with even my closest friends (who am I kidding, my closest friends are my only friends). I never regret it, but if someone is in town and wants to go to dinner, I have to give myself a pretty big pep talk to get out of the door.
Introversion is a huge part of my identity, and my acceptance and understanding of it has been hard won. I wouldn’t give it up for anything, but it does make finding a community hard. Since I’m trying hard to develop a writing habit, I thought this blog would be the perfect place to find a writing community!
So, are you a writer? If so, hi! Please comment or email me via the contact me page. I’d love to connect with you and start to form a little community!
Overflowing with love,
