Did you know that the fear of public speaking is greater for most people than the fear of death?
I’m back from San Diego where I attended — and spoke at — the National Association of Reators’ annual conference. Was I nervous? Yes. Did I do it anyway? Yes. And, I have to say, it was fun.
My class was called “Write it Right” and it was a brush-up, back to basics class for agents who want to improve their business writing skills. Sixty or so people came and it appears (from their evaluations) that they were pleased. I managed to get a few laughs, keep my cool, and enjoy San Diego’s lovely weather and water.
Flew home yesterday and now I’m back to work on both real estate and novel #2. I even squeezed in a much needed visit to the Y this afternoon for a little sweat time with Oprah. (She’s not sweating, at least not that I can tell.) It’s great to get away but always nice to come home to a routine that you like. Now if I could only get myself to vacuum on a regular basis!
