If you are looking for my usual question of the week, I’m moving it to Mondays.
Meanwhile, in my quest to connect you with all my posts about writing or the writing life, here’s a lead-in to one I wrote for Wordserve Water Cooler. If you are an introverted writer, like me, this post is for you.
Marketing for the Introverted Writer
“All you need is you, yourself,” marketing expert and author James Rubart once said with regard to marketing. His comment, given at a meeting of Northwest Christian Writers’ Association, stuck in my mind because I didn’t believe him.

I am an introvert. If I had my way, I’d retire to a closet to write, coming out only to eat, sleep, and possibly notice the existence of my family. Okay, I’m exaggerating, but I really do have a closet office. My post describing it spiked visits to my website, which makes me suspect I’m not the only introverted writer. Welcome, and here are some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way.
Have something to say? The comment link is at the top of the post below the title.
