Truth on Writing

A truth you need to know today:

It is absolutely okay and even required for writers and other creatives to be introverts.

  • Let go of the guilt you feel for not being outgoing and craving daily meetings with friends.
  • Use the gift of introversion to get to know yourself.
  • Your best writing/artistry comes from the depths of who you truly are, if you don’t know who that person is in the depth of his soul, you can’t write well.
  • You don’t have to affirm yourself as a wildly successful artist; instead simply say yes today, to the truth of who you are.

So often we think of ourselves in terms of who we should be. That causes internal divisiveness, which is a distraction at best.

What truth could you say “yes” to today, in celebration of who you really are?

  1. Audra,
    This is such a good post. I especially like the part about knowing yourself and the ending. So true.

    Short and simple. I like it! Extroverts in America are so highly valued, and a lot of people think introverts have a problem that needs fixing. So not true! 🙂

  3. I got home from work today and felt the need to be INTERNAL. This post is just wanted I needed to hear! Thanks, Audra!

  4. I can say yes to the truth of God designed all of us a certain way. In that we all have our own set of strengths and weaknesses. I agree with your summary. I also think if we’re not willing to lay our emotions out there in truth and have them rejected as a writer, we’re in for a rough road.

    Thanks for the wonderful advice.
