I recently presented a seminar at my publisher's first convention...

I stood before an audience
They waited for something from me
An enlightenment, a lesson
A joke, so all could hee hee
"Having fun with fiction"
Was the title of my speel
I got them writing, yes I did
And on a roll I did feel
Then laughter drifted upward
I felt I was in a zone
For teaching is a blessing
But getting a giggle
Is like giving a dog a bone
A mindreader, a mentor, a jester
They all have their time and place
But the best thing to see
For me, at least
Is that smile across their face

Oh this was so nice...I taught art and I
just loved the smiles on the faces when they
learned a new technique...getting the giggles
can be upsetting but then it also can be
fun for all....loved this..floria

So, glad that wasn't me. I know I would've choked. I am just no good at standing in front of a crowd and having all eyes focused on me, as if what I have to say will change their lives. The high expectations I put on myself would cause me be tongue tied.
You're a braver soul than I, Lynn.

THE LITERARY REVIEW ... Be warned, Zapinette's gems of insouciant wit tend to become infectious. This wise-child's deceptively worldly innocence takes the entire gamut ..
