The Scariest Thing You Will Ever Do as a Writer by Susan Kiernan-Lewis
This is a great post about something all writers should be able to do. Luckily for me, I’ve always been pretty fearless about public speaking. Early in my career I showed up to talk to a college Creative Writing class with no notes, spoke for an hour, and the instructor told me it was the best-organized speech she’d ever heard in that class.
But it never occurred to me that I could take copies of my books and hawk them when it was over. Doh!
We can all still learn, folks. And it’s not too late for you. Get out there and speak!
