That is quite comically ironic. I consider myself a writer, and I too fail in the art of speech. XD
I can not hold a conversation even if it could save the would from a slow burning death. Hahaha. I think we write because we do want to speak but are either to afraid or not confident enough to use our voices. Introverted is the exact word defining me, but when you read any of my stories they are extensive in every sense of the word.
I can’t really see myself starting a conversation but I can create one when I feel safe behind my worded canvas.

I find that most writers, myself included, are generally quiet people, often introverted. They're deep thinkers, but usually tend not to be as much small talkers. This seems kind of ironic, since they talk so much through writing.

Do you find the same? Or not? Are you a writer; do you consider yourself to be quiet? :?:
I've always been shy...maybe writing is how we express ourselves because we aren't at ease in social situations...

I'm not the quiet kind at all, more like bubbly and vibrant.
