Did a poetry reading


Recommended Posts

I did a poetry reading last night and it went well. I've become better over the years at standing in front of groups of people, and my nervousness wasn't bad at all for this reading.

Before I did the reading, a couple of the editors of the journal came up to me and told me how much they loved my work. I think that boost of confidence helped contribute to the lessened nervousness.


I could have looked at the crowd more, but I didn't want to take my eyes off my paper and stumble on my words. In the future I should work on better eye contact, though. I've also learned to speak slower and to be comfortable with speaking slower.


Overall, it was a nice little emotional high for me. I only wish I could hold on to those fleeting moments. But they come and go so quickly.
