I made it through my practice session with M! (If you don;t know what I'm talking about, read here. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=353381&p=2) I enjoyed it a lot. I think I've really found something I love as much as writing. Maybe more. It was great fun. I was pretty nervous- you can tell by looking at all the skits. You can see where I was holding them tightly. I think I loosened up a bit after a while, though. We practiced cold reading, acting, eye contact, hand gestures, and projecting. My choir teacher helped us out by printing out 4 skits and a monologue for us to practice. Cold reading? Psh. M wasn't fazed. She did it just as well as she would have with all the lines memorized. She was very sweet and did her best to give me pointers. She didn't give many, though, because she's just natural at acting. She says she finds it rather hard to explain it to people.
