Today is the day of my reading in Philadelphia, and hopefully the weather will cooperate enough so I can get there without a hitch. I'm really looking forward to sharing some stories with people and getting more comfortable reading my work in public.
I still get so nervous standing in front of a room full of people and reading something I wrote. It doesn't seem to matter how much I practice or how good I think the story is. My hands still get sweaty and shaky, and my mouth goes dry. I'm hoping that the more I do these types of events, the more these symptoms will subside.
Wish me luck!! And, if you are in the area, stop by the Erotic Literary Salon!
