Described as “wisdom and wellness for conscious creatives,” Inspire Portal is built for readers looking for inspiration, healing, creative juice, and self-empowerment. Articles range from Roddy Doyle’s Ten Rules for Fiction to How Tai Chi Can Improve Your Writing to 10 Creative Benefits of Spending Time in Nature and much more. As Jo says, “Inspire Portal is a place to inspire your work and world, awakening you to who you really are, behind the protective layers and masks that hide your glorious, innate being.”
Introvert vs. Extrovert is the current question raging across the web. Which one are you? Which one is better? Can’t we all just get along? Of course, the answer is that both are valuable, beautiful, and essential to the big-picture human community on earth. The reason that the introvert extrovert debate has become so popular lately is not because we need to figure out which one is better, but because introverts are finally finding a way to accept themselves for who they are.
So what does that really mean for introvert writers?
I am an introvert.
Growing up, I never would have admitted that. Up until a few years ago the label “introvert” pretty much meant socially awkward, shy, and kind of of dorky. And while I am also sometimes awkward, sometimes shy, and definitely a dork about certain things, when I say I’m an introvert I’m talking about something else entirely.
