Yakkety yak

I've just been asked to give a talk at a writer's conference next Tuesday at Suntec. As a pilates instructor, I've conducted courses on stage for big companies like CISCO, and have no problem. But this is the first time I have to talk about myself, and for 45 minutes too! Yikes.

How am I going to entertain over 100 budding writers? Will they even be interested to know about me? Maybe I should throw in a 30-minute pilates workout or impress them with my flexibility?

I know that giving talks is part and parcel for an author and I should start somewhere. Even if I flub, I will learn from it and keep improving myself. Ok, I'm going to go now and work on my speech.
