So, Dan and I have to give talks in church on the 23rd.
I HATE hate talking in front of people
I can write papers and make things sound okay, but actually getting up in front of hundreds of people and reading it?
No thank you.
Because of my debilitating fear, I am having a hard time getting started.
Any thoughts from my friends out there as to how to make a great talk?
How do you start when preparing a talk?
What kinds of things do you look for?
In case you're interested, the topic is humility and gratitude.
Also, in case you were wondering, Dan is great at giving talks.
So I have to get up there and blunder around for a couple of minutes
and then he takes up the rest of the time with something super spiritual and profound
which makes everyone wonder, "what does he see in her?".
I know I'm just being dramatic, but seriously.
I hate giving talks.
