Hi everyone, and happy weekend! 🙂 I just wanted to share a few thoughts outside of my usual posts.
This morning, I participated in my very first podcast interview about my writing. Sounds great, right. 🙂
Not! I totally bombed it, so now I’m nursing my injured pride back to health. It should be back in full swing by tomorrow. 🙂
Both hosts were fantastic, and did what they could to help me. I should probably mention that one of the hosts was my wonderful sister, and that the podcast is her brand new baby which she shares with a friend of hers.
I was so freaking nervous that I was actually shaking where I stood in my kitchen, dressed in my usual Saturday attire of pj’s and apron. I wanted to sink through the floor as my brain’s temperature dipped below the -44° outside.
It was no use, the words were frozen somewhere between my brain and my mouth. And I all I could think about is that awkward pause you sometimes here during a broadcast. Nooooo!
I mentioned the fact that I’d totally bombed the interview to my sister as an introduction to my sincere apology, but being the ever supportive sister that she is; she reassured me that au contraire, I did great.
I guess that’s what sisters do. They pick you up when you’re down. She also reassured me that once it’s polished, it’ll sound amazing. And I’m thinking that’s an awful lot of polishing with a small miracle on the side.
I did learn a couple of things from the experience though. First of all, it’s not near as easy as my much more outgoing sister makes it seem, and I’m better off sticking to my writing.
Once an introvert, always an introvert. 🙂
