I have never been to Iowa before, this will be a new experience for me. Next week I will begin packing and planning my table. Somehow this is more intimidating than standing in front of a room of 150 people giving a public speech. I know, I’m weird.
More people are afraid of public speaking than are afraid of dying! But for me, standing in front of people one on one, having them judge my work as worthy or not. . . is intimidating for me. I will say that some of the advice that I have received over the years for public speaking was terrible. Like for instance, picture your audience naked. OH GOD NO!
Not only are there people like me who have expanded their horizons and their waistlines, but there are people who are ripped and extremely good specimens of the human form. How can you focus on speech when you glance across one of those guys???
There is no way to hide the stumble on that one when my cheeks turn vivid red!
Anyway, as the other ladies are preparing to head south, I’m going north. By the way, I think it’s really cool that their banner matches my cover.
Well, pretty close anyways! I’m also excited because I got another review – 5 stars!
If you haven’t read it yet maybe you should! Meanwhile, I need to get back to work on Valkyrie’s Curse. I’m this *measures gap between index finger and thumb* close to having the final touches on it to send to my beta readers. My goal is to get it in their hands before I leave for Iowa!
till next time
