How Lauren Sapala & I manage our 'sensitivity' as introvert writers

In part 9 of our little conversation series, my writer friend Lauren Sapala & I spoke about sensitivity and how me manage it.

We both happen to be introverts, Lauren is an INFJ and I’m an INFP.

This month’s conversation topic was inspired by someone asking me my how I’ve learned to manage my sensitivity, whilst I was in away Madeira over the Summer.

Amongst other things, Lauren & I talk about:

- How we feel in our bodies - Counteracting screentime and computer/phone-scrolling - Managing & responding to emails - Why Lauren says “no” a lot / the books we’re currently reading - Giving ourselves *permission* to have what we need

And finally, my journal entry for last month…

“Goodness, it's been quite the month.

Two big projects have been occupying my time of late. The first being my book, getting it finished and putting a launch process together. And the second being, a new direction and a re-brand.

Firstly, my book... So, I've had to be pretty focused as I've put the launch together and released it over the last couple of weeks, at the same time as getting the book completed and edited.

As this is book number one for me, it all continues to be a learning process. Figuring out the front and back pages that are needed, through to how to get the final version in a format that's presentable.”
