Creativity for Introverts
Creativity for Introverts is a zine series by GhostSushi, who lives near DC.
The series focuses on helping you deal with your creativity as an introvert in a world that expects you to easily jump out of your skin at any given moment, but it also addresses issues with accepting introversion, balancing energy levels throughout life, and what to do in uncomfortable social situations. Each zine comes with access to an exclusive website with supplementary exercises that will assist in balancing your energy levels.
The author is interested in distro opportunities.

- Issue 3: Energy Explains in more detail the different kinds of energies both extroverts and introverts possess, including how you can pay attention to your own energy levels.

- Issue 4: Reaction vs Response Addresses our responses to unideal situations and how we act around people who don't understand introversion.
