I'm the same way. I really struggle in social situations, and yet I do ok speaking in front of a group. It's weird, isn't it?

But yeah, I can't talk to someone in the checkout line or the bathroom. I have to work really hard to do that. It's almost painful.


I think if you dig down into most writers you'll find yourself right there - anxious, angst-ridden and stressed! They've just learned to hide it when presenting (as you have through doing LTUE three times). When you're a published writer you'll find the first time harder than the second, but little-by-little you'll get the hang of it and be able to relax and start to enjoy it (even if only a little bit).


some of my very favorite authors are shy and not extroverted. Anne Tyler. Elizabeth Strout. :)


It matters because it matters to you. You will find a way to market yourself and answer fan questions when you get to the point of marketing. You will, because it matters to you.


Congratulations on a job well done
