I will be sharing with you some of my favourite writing quotes on a daily and or a weekly basis. Today’s favorite quote of the day is:
“Writing is something you do alone. It is a profession for introverts who want to tell you a story but don’t want to make eye contact while doing it.” ― John Green
As an introvert passionate about story-telling, this quote strikes a chord in me and speaks volumes. This is because:
1.As an introvert sometimes, talking seems a daunting task and highly intimidating
2.For introverted people, listening is much more fun and easier than speaking. Therefore, introverts gather tons of information
3.Introverts are more emotionally aware of their surrounding, their emotions, and its effect on the life of others.
4.Introverts are fountains of creativity. And the best way to unleash the creativity is through writing.
5.Introverts spend more time alone than with others. And have a constant need for monologue.
6.Introverts often have a small circle of friends. Their best friends may be their books.
7.Introverts are comfortable in their silence.
8.They feel isolate and often misunderstood by others
9.They are often warm and able to easily create intimacy
10.They make good leaders
11.They are like onions, have so many layers. It takes time for an introvert to fully reveal themselves
Have you ever been told that you are an introvert, too “shy”, “too quiet,” “arrogant,” or “detached from the world”? Are you constantly being challenged, your habits and comfort zones put under question mark by a society that does not seem to understand the real you? If so, you might be an introvert.
Or are you an extroverted person raisin an introverted child or vice versa?
Please comment and answer some of the questions above.
Thanks and see you at the other side
