The Annual Finals

Kezlia hadn’t been a performer but a behind-the-scenes organiser. Until someone slapped the mic in her hand. Now she took a deep breath… they weren’t there to see her.

‘Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Annual Amateur Finals of the Dark Art of Pancake Threading.’

She waited. And enjoyed the applause.

  3. I like how you say so many things with a few words. Being under the limelight can be challenging but great as well. I have never been good at it, but doesn’t matter 🙂

      I remember my first time. Talk about tense. Then I did my bit. And ended with a humorous quip … because that’s me … and the audience laughed, and that was me hooked. Though I’m not a performer, I am able when it’s needed.

      • That is really cool. I have stage fright and that is having a toll on my self confidence. I have got to do something about it😅

        Depends on the situation, what you might do. But you might watch/listen to interviews of performers. You’ll find almost all have stage fright in some form. It’s take a deep breath .. and do it. But it’s definitely easier if you, as with writing, you know what you’re doing.
