I’ll admit it. I’m no salesman. Plus, I’m an introvert and socially awkward. But I just did a thing. You know, that marketing thing. And it wasn’t as terrible as I thought it would be.
That’s a lie.
Making a video and posting it on Instagram was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I made a series of #writequick mini-vids using a Snapchat filter. Filters are an answer to prayer for introverted writers like me. I can’t say it myself, but this doe-eyed character with glittery antlers can. It’s amazing!
This is a short blog, but I had to share this revelation with my fellow shy violets. If the thought of appearing on camera makes you want to vomit, try making a video using a filter. It takes a lot of the pressure off.
My goal is to wean myself off the filter as I get more confident on camera. Let me know how it works for you.
