Trial By Fire

Some writers are very outgoing people.

Others enjoy the writing life because it’s solitary – a life of the mind that doesn’t require constant engagement with other people.

I’m probably somewhere in the middle.  But when it comes to public speaking, I am squarely in the please-no! camp.  (This does not count kids – I’m always happy to visit with them!)

So you will understand when I tell you that, since today I’m off to Saratoga Springs to give a talk to actual professional grown-ups, I am undergoing a whole new experience of the term trial by fire!

Wish me luck!  If I survive, I’ll tell you about it tomorrow.  Or possibly the day after depending on recovery time 🙂
