I have been a writer/author for over 45 years. I’ve also been a speaker, centering my talks on saving family stories and/or how to use your imagination in fiction writing.
Since, like many writers, I’m an introvert and fear speaking in public. I’ve worked hard over the years to overcome this problem.
This column was written many years ago when I first began speaking.
I’ve learned how humor and fun can take hold of a crowd, no matter their age.
In the future, when the pandemic comes under control, I hope to be able to get out to visit schools and libraries again. I miss the face-to-face interactions.
