My first author event is this coming Friday night, and I’m super excited and super nervous. Others may say differently, but I’m not much of a people person. I’m an introvert, and activities like this are such a drain on my energy. Not to say I don’t have fun when out and about, but I can only be “on” for so long before I just want to crawl under my blankets and hide out.
I think that’s what makes writing so interesting to me. Through my characters, I can be anyone and do anything I want, and I try and flip this around to my advantage as well. In situations where I am out of my comfort zone, I think about how this character would handle it, or what that character would say, and then I do my best to be like that person. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Either way, it sure makes for some good research material, lol!!
