Last night Sandy went to a meeting, the house was quiet, and I sat in the living room to read my speech for the author luncheon talk next Friday at Missouri Early Learning Conference. It’s a 45 minute talk and I’ve been working on it for some time. It was time to hear it aloud to see where I might need to make adjustments.
It’s a lousy speech. It’s boring and there’s no way to save it. I missed my target. It’s tedious and vain and guaranteed to run a bunch of teachers from the room. I can salvage the first page and a few lines from the last. Otherwise, I’m starting over today. If I can’t do better than that, they shouldn’t pay me.
So that’s my day. Good luck with yours.
