My Book Presentation.

I’m very exited. As I mentioned before, my Book Presentation is coming soon. I’m very shy person. Even at School I hated to speak up front of the classroom. Well, I just have to do it. Nobody else can do it for me.
I have a great news – yesterday my favorite Librarian told me that she liked what I’m planing to say to the audience. And next week she is going to tell me WHEN.
Well- so I’m learning how to talk about myself and my Book.
And I find out that it is lot easier to write a Book than talk about it.

I want to share with you first page – Opening – of my Presentation.

Hi! My name is Anna Flejzor – aka Oneanna65. I’m going to talk about myself and my Book: “About” by Oneanna65.

Can anybody guess why I’m setting this kitchen timer on 18 minutes?

Well, I overheard on 60 MINUTES that an average person attention span is only 18 minutes.
How great to know!!!
So when that thing rings after 18 minutes – it will wake-up some of you ( ๐Ÿ™‚ ) – then we can decided what we do next:
– Should I continue
– Anyone have a question
– Or should I just go home

Oh, no! I’m not pessimist.
I always hope for the best, but I like to be prepared for the worst.

And I want to tell you one of my secrets:

My glass is not HALF FULL.
My glass is Full.

Because someone said once: “What you can imagine – IS REAL”.
So why imagine HALF FULL glass???

Thank you for visiting.

God Bless you all.

  1. Good luck, Anna. I’m sure you’ll do very well. However I did read recently that the average attention span for an adult in 2015 is 8.25 seconds so you know they’ll remember your name.๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Hello Anna,

    I wish you very best for your presentation. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And my attention span is not 18 minutes, it’s 18 seconds or 8.5? ๐Ÿ˜›

    Best wishes,


  3. I’m always impressed by your focus and resolve toward whatever is your chosen objective! As a reader who wants to one day write a book or more, once I’ve crossed off items on my current todo list, your sharing your bravery here is inspiring! Character shines through despite our delivery. You will always succeed, even on a “bad” day..

    Nice work with the research on the 18 minute attention span!

  4. Good luck with it. I recommend watching the ted talk by Sarah Cain, the power of introverts. She is a shy author who had to deal with talking about her book.. It might help ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Best of luck Anna! I am totally rooting for you. I love your analogy about your glass being full. It’s true! When you are imagining, there are no limits! I really enjoy reading your posts, you impart such valuable little gems with each post.

  6. I love your attitude, Anna, and I hope your book does so well! I must stay that sometimes my glass runs the gamut of full to empty and back…but my glass is always refillable. That’s the beauty of it for me. God bless you!

  7. It is true that we have the choice to stay positive at all times. It is beautiful to see that you are staying strong. I am sure writing is helping you. It is an amazing way to vent and blogging is an amazing way to build a support system.
    It is encouraging to see you who could sit and be sad to be out encouraging others that they can be strong too.
    Id like to keep in touch with you! It is always a blessing to know optimistic people!

  8. Good to hear (read) your thoughts Anna. Writing is a great art of bringing the silence of the void of voices from within. I also appreciate writers more than speakers. In Western thought and Philosophy, right from the days of Socrates, speech was privileged over writing. Modern thinkers and writers like Derrida are liberating writing from speech. You articulate yourself well dear Anna.

  9. Good for you!
    The adrenaline was pumping during my recent 45-minute book presentation to a group of other writers. I interspersed my talk with a few hands on exercises to break the Listening. Some read what they had written. Easier for me, more interesting for them.
    Thanks for that info, that 18 minutes is our listening limit!

  10. Love it. You are positive and you have something good to share. You just have to let it flow and you will be fine. I recently had to give a presentation at work. It was for a Kazan event that we had finished. I knew that there was no getting out of it or around it without being a total baby about it so I made up my mind that I was going to do it and not entertain any thoughts of not doing it. So when the time came I just said what I knew I had to say and then started to field questions from the people that I was speaking to and found that because I knew what I was talking about and did not let my fear stand in the way I did a real good job. I was even told that they couldn’t tell that I was nervous. However I sure could.
    You will do just fine.

  11. Thank you for liking my blog. I do hope you will check back from time to time. My post today gives 20 Tips For Giving a Stellar Presentation. I wish you the best in your endeavors ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Place God before all decisions and pray before you speak so that His spirit may relax you enough and slow you enough to recall what you already know in the most delightful cogent manner. God bless you.

  13. So encouraging and uplifting! You’ve made your experience one that can truly help others living with a diagnosis of cancer. I have a similar accounting to make and share one of these days.
    Best of luck to you and thank you for the thumbs up!

  14. I hope your presentation caused great sparkles to float around in that library! I do love your reference to the “glass half full”; whilest reading your post, I was comparing yours with my own “Glass Half Full” post on my blog site. Not exactly the same, since our situations differ, but pretty darned close!

    Just a question about your book…is it available on Amazon, whether in print or via Kindle? I’d love to read even a review about it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for popping in to The Old Fossil Writes…it always surprises me when I check my notifications and discover there are actually people who aren’t related to me who visit my sites!!

    God bless and keep you……..keep up the good work!
