Oy.

I’m sure it comes as no surprise to anyone that I’m not shy.  Put me in a room full of strangers and I’ll have them singing rounds of Row, Row, Row Your Boat in no time.

I’m also not afraid of speaking in front of people.  I’ve been in plays.  I’ve sung in front of strangers.  Been on job interviews.  I’m also president of my local RWA chapter.

But… BUT on Saturday, I’m presenting a workshop.  On fear.  As in, ignore it.

Okay, granted, we’re doing a workshop blitz so it will only be 20 minutes, not 1.5 hours.  And I’ve done many blog posts about this subject.  But those were blog posts.  Where I could carefully and thoughtfully carve out every word before its seen by the public.  Not speaking about it like I know what I’m talking about.

*gulp*

    You’ll apply the best piece of advice on fear a performer or writer or human being can get, one I know you have heard and given for years: Use it. Or (to be more wordy and allegorical) harness that bad boy and ride it until it knows you’re in charge… and stay on it a little longer, so you can enjoy the ride.
