An Introvert’s Guide to Landing Those Artistic ‘Opportunities’

Opportunities exist to all who look for and welcome them. I’m no different when it comes to the desire to jump on new opportunities. The difference in me, however, stems from the fact that I’m not all that great at putting myself out there, making opportunities, and most of all, turning these prospective opportunities into faithful clients and contracts. (It’s especially difficult to align a job with my Spiritual Self, and find more than just monetary satisfaction in it.)

So for an introvert to find and pounce on opportunities in the writing and creative world, there needs to be a ritual–of some fashion. I usually have to seriously analyze every angle of a thing before I let intuitive forces and Fate take the reigns. Whatever the ritual, there are some great tips to add to yours to help get the ball rolling toward grabbing your gigs.

I’ve compiled a short list of resources here to help fellow creative introverts like myself put themselves out there and make their own opportunities.
