Write a story that contains an introverted character.
They do not have to be the main character, but think about which personality traits they demonstrate that could relate to your plot, and drive your scene.
It’s a quiet street that Maria’s brought me to, an unassuming American suburb. The house she just parked in front of looks like it should host a small middle-class family—I can imagine a couple of brown-eyed kids playing tag in the backyard under the watch of their careworn parents—but it turns out this blue-painted house with its cream shutters and neatly manicured lawn belongs to the supposedly ...
“And what do you think people think of you?” Glenda says. To be honest, I think she only became a therapist to gossip
I roll my eyes and get comfy in the sofa.
“Let’s see” I sigh. “They think I’m shy. When really I just don’t like them.”
“And why don’t you like any of your classmates” she says in a hiss
Why? I just don’t.
“Becauseeeee” I grumble. “They are like leeches. Sucking my energy unt...

"Okay, pro: Free food."
She's got a point there.
"Con: Madison Rivers." I say, scrunching my nose. She's always hated my guts. I'd call her homophobic, but this actually all started from when I still thought babies came from storks.
"Fair enough..." Em squints her eyes in thought and I zone out thinking about the third-grade girls soccer team I got kicked out of for punching Maddy in her stupi...
Hello, my name is Brent Rockton
I am a college junior, 17 years old
I have the best grades in the class
However, that part is never told
The only thing that’s told about me
Is that I’m just the shy, nervous dork
I’m always kicked around all over school
Like an armless, legless piece of pork
I guess you can call me the outcast
But I honestly don’t care what you think
To me, being different from t...
Seeing an introverted person sitting alone at lunch irritated Mirches. They’re so out of touch with the world and she couldn’t see how anyone didn’t like talking that much.
Mirches could barely go ten seconds without talking, however, she did understand that when people come to high school everyone’s clique is already established amongst themselves. So obviously, it’s hard to join in and have so...
Can we all just be a bit quieter in here?
Sorry, but you need to tone it down.
I’m not being rude, I’m just saying-just asking if you can lower the volume.
I know you want to have fun, and I get it. I’m not one of those people. I’m not the police or anything, or a swat, or anything like that. But it’s very easy to chat quietly.
I’m just saying.
Please, it’s giving me a headache.
Why do you alway...
He wasn’t the quiet kid. At least he didn’t consider himself to be the quiet kid. He spoke when he had something to say and didn’t waste his breath otherwise. He sat in the back of his classes. He kept earbuds in while walking the hallways but no one knew there was never anything playing. When the bell rang at the start of first period, he would act as though he hadn’t heard the guys next to him ...
Taylor just stirred in the shadows. And watched all the other students flutter about with excitement! It was the first day of school. She hoped and prayed that no one would see her. Or pay any attention to her. Taylor just wanted to get through her classes. And go home.
Where she Felt like she could breathe. Also where there wasn’t a lot of people to feel intimidated by! Her home, her bedroom wa...
