    Slim has a point there.

    Clovia does put Slim down, as she did recently. This is a chance for Slim to be supportive of her, but he does not seem to know how to. Slim is sort of Chester A. Riley.
    I could give her advice about how to be an effective public speaker, but only 2 problems. She’s not asking me and she’s not a real person. I’m amazed that so many people fear public speaking. It’s really a matter of being completely prepared, organizing your material, believing that you know more about your subject than anyone in the audience and, above all, believing what you are talking about. You can’t sell a product, an idea or a concept unless you believe in it yourself.

    I never mastered the trick of picturing your audience naked.

    Everybody says Clovia is so cute, but I’m a Winnie Winkle man myself.

    Just picture them all sitting in the bathroom taking care of business. “Everybody poops.”

    Some of us have severe anxiety and shyness issues. Heart races, hard to breathe, etc. I actually cried after giving a presentation in class last year. I do well on my presentations but my anxiety makes it very difficult for me.

    I’m a lousy public speaker. If you hear a snoring audience…

    But I can write stuff like this:

    “After an hour, Sharon-Abib’s group reached Tehran’s suburbs. The oil fires were still spreading, their pillars of yellow and orange light illuminating the city. Clouds of black smoke obscured those portions of Tehran downwind from the fires. The city itself had only a handful of electric lights lit, most of which were flashlights bobbing around the streets as troops ran to fight fires. It was somewhat weird to be flying over twelve million people and see no streetlights, no cars or trucks running, nothing larger than a bicycle moving. Even Mehrabad International Airport was illuminated only by the columns of burning petroleum.”— page 36, Jacob’s Trouble, the Gathering Storm.
    While I’ve little doubt it can be improved with practice, some people are very good at public speaking and others are not.
