so i'm going to be a guest on a radio show
    #7152690 - 07/09/07 08:11 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

so a major radio station is including young authors in their morning wake-up program this week and someone asked me if i wanted to go.

then a caller is supposed to give me a character and/or a hint about something, they'll send me to some secluded room and i'm supposed to write a story based on it. THE worst time to get writers block.

i've written a book of short stories, sort of a mix of the grotesque and the absurd. i'm pretty nervous because OBVIOUSLY i've never been on a live radio show. any advice or opinions what i should do to cool off?

probably not a good time to start.

Have a few shots to calm your nerves.. and just relax.. at least these people aren't going to be able to put a face to a voice.. so even if you do make a prick out of yourself it won't be the end of the world...

Do a prank phone call to ease the nerves of performance.

i usually say "shit" and "fuck" a lot so i hope that i won't start saying those words before and after every sentence out of nervousness. blah, this country is pretty small so i guess i won't be totally anonymous.

OR i could cause a scene there, insult every author this country has ever had and then tell the audience to fuck the fuck off because i'm too good for those ingrates anyway.

stop worrying, if writing/being an author is something you have a passion for, and it's something that you want to dedicate your life to, then why are you nervous? this sounds like a great opportunity, have fun with it.

stop worrying about it, or it will pass before you know it, and you will have wished you hadn't worried so much about it, and wish that you rather had enjoyed it.

Makes more sense than a writer who doesn't drink...

Hey, BoredStiff..you got anything you've written available online? I'd like to check it out

I wouldn't go there intoxicated. Pot is overrated too. Some people like it, some don't. imo  :beer: > :stash:

Good luck with the radio show :thumbup:

"If we could sniff or swallow something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as individuals, atone us with our fellows in a glowing exaltation of affection and make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful and significant, and if this heavenly, world-transfiguring drug were of such a kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and an undamaged constitution - then, it seems to me, all our problems (and not merely the one small problem of discovering a novel pleasure) would be wholly solved and earth would become paradise." - Aldous Huxley
