This is a pretty simple concept: every other Thursday is my day to blog. It's written on my calendar, so you'd think it would connect before mid-afternoon when I can't get to my computer. Heavy sigh. Well, I'm typing as fast as I can to actually get this posted on Thursday.
My topic today is, How do you learn?
I'm doing a presentation for a sister RWA chapter in Bellevue, Washington on October 9. I'm still working on the presentation and probably will be tweaking it up to the day I leave.
I'm asking you to help me with the presentation by giving me your feedback on what you like to see/hear/experience at chapter meetings.
-- How do you learn best? By hearing something? By seeing something written down? By doing examples? Or a combination of these?
-- Do you like to do writing exercises? Listen to craft or how-to presentations? Or would you prefer an inspirational speech? (I've already decided my topic, so I hope you answer this one with what I'm doing!)
-- Do cookies or chocolate help you concentrate on the presentation? Or are they just a bonus? (You don't really have to answer this one, but maybe I should try out one of Lori's cookie recipes!)
How about those of you who have made presentations? What are your tricks to calm your nerves? Picturing your audience in their underwear? Just jump in and get it done? Take a deep breath and learn with your audience?
Other words of wisdom? Thank you!
