What it's like in an Introvert's Head could explain why some people don't like (or can't read or enjoy) fast chats. It's images, not text, so don't be shy about having a look. It might help you with an introverted relative or friend, too!
In the chat on February 8, I wrote a bit how the chats work (and don't work):
Sandra Dodd: I have mentioned somewhere a time or two (on the writing page? in here?) that this chat uses something that school never EVER taught.If you're reading this by e-mail and you need a path to the chatroom, click on the title to get to the blog, which has a tab up to the left with the link and password.
Sandra Dodd: But many workplaces need it. And it's still not taught.
Megan Valnes: Ok, what's that?
Sandra Dodd: Real-time writing.
Sandra Dodd: So for those who don't mind confusion (when three conversations weave back and forth like a car chase), or who can type fast and think fast and won't get a headache, this can be fun, in a mental-gymnastics way.
Sandra Dodd: But it's not for everybody, I know.
