I am literally days away from presenting my work to an audience. My manuscript is printed, my Writing for Children and YA portfolio is done and just needs to get printed, and my presentation has two things that need to get fixed (a typo and a call out to my second reading). I’m ready to go and do this!
I just don’t want to.
I don’t think we read our own work enough as students. In workshops, someone else reads your work while you sit and listen. I think you should always have to read your work. It forces you to be more comfortable with it.
In the mean time. I don’t want to do this presentation and I’m trying to think of any possible way to stall the process.
