If I was smart, or more adept in the Ways of the Extrovert, I probably would have done this a long time ago. But alas, my introversion has conversely become something I have accepted…and something that I would readily trade away for three magical extrovert beans.
It took me too long to seek out some exposure for my novel, Onwards & Outwards. I am getting used to the idea that the artist in modern society is, more than anything, loud (it has probably always been the case). The quiet artist, the secret sharer who bares their soul with the door closed, or the one that does not ask for a person’s eyes, ears, and heart, is one that easily becomes just another weirdo in the din.
But that’s okay. Because I don’t have to deal with coverage and criticism about people crying because I didn’t sign their autographs.
Are you an artist? What has been your experience with exposure and self-promotion? Tell me all about it below. I look forward to downing some Writer‘s Tears while reading your stories.
