I have been writing since I was a child and for much of this time I have had a dream to some way use my writing to not only give me satisfaction, but to also give some pleasure to others.
I have a rather dry wit, or so I am told and I am sure that it does not appeal to everyone, but it is there and it is mine.
I recently joined Toastmasters and have thus far given two talks. I say talks, because I don't think my skills are quite advanced enough yet to say speaches. My purpose is to advance my speaking skills so that I have a comfort level before a group and use speaking for more than just getting a laugh. For a number of years I have been doing a comedy routine for church and senior citizen groups. My total goal was to get them laughing.
At Toastmasters I have met a young man who is currently doing comedy clubs. After my talk that had bits of humor injected in it, he gave me his number and asked that I call him. We are to get together soon to see if we can do some work together. I told him that I believe that I have some material that he can use.
I also met an Internation Speaker and published author. He is willing to help me with information and advice about my book. I still want to self publish this book and need the advice and push to do so. I particularly need advice about marketing the book. I have to get busy and take out real names and get it better organized, but all of the material is there.
I have never given up on my dreams. I may not reach them, but I will have the satisfaction of knowing that I did reach high for them.
