One of the blogs I follow regularly is Shrinking Violet Promotions (subtitle – Marketing for Introverts,) who are always interesting and provide a much welcome contrast to the rather extrovert advice I get elsewhere.

This one is particularly encouraging, addressing the reasons why an author can suddenly find that they just can’t take this writing life any more:
And this one ties in to that, I think, in that sometimes all the energy expended on promotion can be one of the reasons you don’t have any left over for writing:
With another cause for writing fatigue being the deluge of promotion for other people’s books. (I shouldn’t be saying this immediately after my last post, should I?!)
As someone who always scores 100% Introversion on these personality tests, these ladies are talking my language, and I’m very glad they are 🙂
