Robyn Welling is a freelance writer, co-author of two best-selling humor anthologies, "I Just Want To Pee Alone" and "You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth", columnist and Editorial Assistant at InThePowderRoom.com, writer at NickMom.com and CraftFail.com, and humorist at HollowTree Ventures, where she isn't afraid to embarrass herself — and frequently does. She loves sarcasm, wine, beer, other bottled items, long walks on the beach, and her husband. Oh, and her kids are okay, too. Her goals include world domination and getting her children to clean their rooms, but until then, she'll just fold laundry and write about the shortcuts she takes on her journey to becoming a somewhat passable human being. If history is any guide, she'll miss the mark entirely. You can find her avoiding responsibility on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. Since she's really mature, she also plays with her kids' dolls on As The Dollhouse Turns.
I was painfully shy growing up.
I'm still introverted, but you can't realistically claim to be totally shy when you write stuff for a living and genuinely want people to read it. I love that part of writing -- hearing people's reactions, taking part in conversations, sharing ideas.

Thank you for coming to this meeting, Madeline. I must admit, I'm a little surprised to see you here after I found your copy of the memo in the recycling bin, covered with Hello Kitty...
