The quiet writer

Continuing the theme of shy and introverted authors, I happened upon this article ThisDayLive.

It seems, and this is unlikely to surprise anyone, that introverted thinkers can often go on to become accomplished, or even great writers. The article’s author describes herself as ‘…an introvert. That is what I am wired to be, and to write..’

Can you relate to the issues described here? I certainly can!

The Huffington Post goes on to list sixteen famous faces who were (and still are) considered to be introverts. Some of them might surprise you.

In the meantime, shyness notwithstanding, I intend to:

A book by Susan Cain sheds some light on that quiet section of the population known as the ‘Quiet ones.’

Cain seeks to celebrate the quiet, retiring types and asks why society feels the need to push them into the spotlight – a painfully uncomfortable place for the introvert.

In wondering why we celebrate all that is loud and brash, she proposes that we try to embrace the creativity that lies within the quiet thinkers of our civilisation, rather than despoil their qualities by forcibly herding them into ‘learning pods’ in schools and asking what is ‘wrong’ when introverts don’t ambitiously seek wealth and fame like their co-workers.

Even if you don’t feel drawn to read ‘Quiet,’ read Judith Warner’s synopsis and see if you agree with the way this book is leaning.

Go on, don’t be shy! 😀

Introverts unite! …quietly and behind closed doors.
