The Computer Swallowed GrandPa

Post by Dave Smith » Sun Jun 19, 2011 10:21 pm

This is a little one my grandkids sent to me and I'm sorry I don't know where it came from so I hope I am not stepping on any toes.

This was recorded at afternoon tea with our dance group.

That was beaut Dave. An open invitation to join you with your friends & family for a pleasant time. Thank you. The tips I would offer are:
Always, forever, & never fail....to script your introduction. Write it out until it is crisp, & to the point, & you are happy with it, & l e a r n it just as you would your poem. Record it & listen to it, & time it, in the interests of set time limits for comps etc. Also, strangely enough, just trying to record a newly learned poem puts a % of stress on you, & that is a great baby stepping way to get the thing finally stuck in your head, & your confidence up.
Your delivery will improve out of sight if you commit the intro & poem to memory. In my experience...having your hard copy on hand is almost a guarantee that you will reach for it, so when presenting a newly learned poem for the first time, it is best to have a reliable prompter nearby. I find it far less likely that a prompter will be called upon. I have found that once a poem has been presented to an audience successfully, it seems to sit tight in your memory. So my advice is to always initially present to a kindly group where a slip etc will not be a disaster....at a barbie etc. Once you have that achieved you are set for the pro or comp stage.

I do hope this helps. I look forward to your future efforts.

Gad Glenny ya went and pinched all my secrets. Exactly what you said will work nearly every time I even bounce half memorised one's off people and ask their opinion as to if it will be entertaining or not.

Family will not listen anymore so Gave up on them.

G'daaay Bob,
Yeah. You should see my kids scatter when I approach with a paper in hand. 'Oh no! Here comes Ma with another poem! Scoot!'

Pearls before the feet of swine, old mate. (Deep sigh).

Thanks Glenny, yes I try and script my intro and any yarns That I have but I printed this one out as I left the house and I plonked it on here unedited, so it has all the bannter that goes on with our dance group.

No worries Dave. It felt like a nice little interlude in a shocker of a day (another story) at your barbie with your friends. The casual delivery was quite enjoyable. Thanks again.
