A Lesson in Speaking
The last couple of days have been quite an experience for me. On Tuesday, I spoke as part of a workshop on marketing for Pikes Peak Writers, and on Wednesday, I spoke to four different classes at a high school in Denver. Through these experiences, I personally have learned a lot.
The panel was super informative! I took quite a bit out of it, although I really didn't have much to offer. Sure, I'm a published author, but I have in no way mastered marketing my books. So I shared a little about what I do and how I do it, then soaked in all the amazing knowledge the other participants had to offer. I found myself encouraged and empowered to get out there and sell my book!
Ah, if only it was that easy...
And what better way to freak out an introvert than to have her stand up in front of a bunch of high school students? Yeah, I was very nervous. But I had a great time! After talking about my writing journey, the kids did some improv writing. I was so impressed! I encountered some rather talented young writers. Their voices are all unique with so much to say!
While I enjoyed the experience, I know it could have been better. I have much work to do on my personal presentation. Going through this has shown me what I need to do, and I'm really excited about what's to come!
