Introverts, sensitivity: Holiday Seasons

For those of us who would rather walk quietly in a museum, reshelf and browse books at a library or bookstore; for those who would like to put on a pair of skates and glide on ice under the stars seeing your breath blow out in clouds. For those of us who enjoy curling up with a favorite book, a blanket, and shut out the world around us. The holidays can be a time feeling like you are a Shakespearean actor, thrust onto a wooden, waxed stage. And you become deathly afraid of falling into the musician’s pit or disappointing the audience closely watching you.

Your feelings are valid; nothing is wrong with you. You are a sensitive soul, is my guess. And you are in great company.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. May you find a quiet nook this holiday season. Eat, write and be merry. At your own pace, in your own time, in your own way.

Happy writing.

Guest Blog: My Thoughts on ‘Jane Eyre’

I recently wrote a guest blog for Charles French’s series on the U.L.S., or Underground Library Society. I picked Charlotte Brontë’s ‘Jane Eyre’ as my novel. If you’re interested in giving this a read, check out what I wrote on the masterpiece here. Feel free to contact French if you’re interested in potentially contributing a piece as well.

Also if you’d like to read fellow author Andrew McDowell’s piece he wrote for U.L.S. on Dicken’s “The Christmas Carol” the link to his blog can be found here, introducing what he wrote. I decided to take a crack at this after reading his take–thanks for the inspiration, Andrew!

Until then–happy reading and writing. Wonderful things can be found in books, can’t they? I recently finished reading a book where the villain was knocked out by a thick, 8oo pager paperback. I couldn’t help but smile. That was quite clever of the author, I thought.

Cheers.

Brief Humor & Check-Ins, Introversion/INTJ

I’m going to go out on a limb here and offer an observation. You’re welcome to swing it back over the net and volley it around. I’ll walk away and let you chew on the little birdie. 🏸

Introversion is seen as a problem by many people as a personality “quirk” that is less than ideal. If you’re not a card carrying member of the fabulous trifecta F’s of American society (see: football-family-and forever fiestas), you might get the coveted ‘weirdo’ sticker plastered onto your forehead. This sticker doesn’t come off in the shower, but one can fix their bangs around it quite stylishly. Sassy…
