The Blog of an Introvert

Kristen Lamb cracks me up every time I read one of her Blogs. She is funny and witty.

I just started following her blogs recently and she does have a point when she writes about the importance of blogging among writers. It is an important tool that does help a writer learn to write better.

I have seen my writing skills improve over the past two years. I have gotten faster with my typing skills and it is getting easier to think up topic content for each post.

But with one of Kristen’s recent posts it sparked a thought.

Her question was: How many of you are introverts and this is making you maybe peek out from behind the curtains?

How did she know I was peeking?

Granted I don’t get out much. I don’t spend the necessary time socializing. My schedule in life is redundant but it works for me. It helps keep me focused on being a writer.

I get up in the morning – check emails – check Facebook – check Twitter

Go to work – this is my day job – this is when I work as a weaver and weave specialty cloth and maybe do an odd job here and there at work. It pays the bills. I chat with a few co-workers but it is kept to a minimum so I can get my work done on time.

Go home – my day job is done for that day, I get to go home, maybe run a few errands, but then it is home, to my family. My family at home consists of my Mom, my other half – Mike, my son – when he is around – which isn’t much these days – he is getting his life back and sees it, our dog – Julie – she will be my crit partner for this month’s NHRWA challenge. I am to read Aaron & Keja to her and maybe have another shot at the story with a possible additional edit by her. Maybe the other two cats – Gracie and Sam will join in. This story does feature a dog and a cat so we will see what they think. (LOL)

At home – I split my time up during the week and the weekend. I try to focus most of my time on writing but it doesn’t always go that way. I have to do a bit of this and that. This helps keep me from becoming burned out on any of the other things I like to do. This being, crochet – I’m working on two Afghans. One I already ran out of yarn for and need to buy more of that color. The other one is made by making Granny Squares. I’m half way done making these then I get to put it all together.

Then the other time I’m not writing – I’m gaming. No not Facebook games. I am a World of Warcraft Player. I use WOW as my reward for a writing job well done. This is my chocolate, my socializing, and my fun time.

Am I an Introvert?

Maybe – well just a little bit. But I do have my game World of Warcraft to brighten my day.
