Have you ever rented a room off of craigslist?

To maintain my sanity, I need to move out of my house as soon as possible. I'd prefer to move in with friends, but that won't be able to happen until January, and I'm going to have a breakdown if I stay here. I have terrible credit so I can't rent a place on my own.
So I'm turning to craigslist, looking for roommates. I'm introverted and quiet, which makes me wonder if I'll be able to win the personality contest that I imagine the process turns into. Any tips for how to make this work? Warnings? Sneaky ways of getting people to think "yes! I would like this person to move in next week"?
