Getting Harder

So we got to do our first speech last week and I was not too nervous about it because it was just a reading. Once I got up there to read it my body was shaking so bad I felt so nervous but I kept telling myself to calm down. It’s like in my head. I was calm but my body was so nervous and I don’t know why or how to fix that but I will have to figure something out.

I felt like I did pretty good but I have a soft voice so I wasn’t quiet loud enough even though when I was up there I felt like I was being loud enough. The feedback from the class was awesome. I loved that because it will help me with my next speech. When I give my next speech I need to be louder and have more eye contact. Listening to everyone else’s speeches helped me, too. It helped me to see what they needed to work on so I could help them give a better speech even though they were all good.

I can not think of a topic for my informative speech. It is driving me crazy because I need to find a topic so I can start organizing my speech to make it good and the way I want it. I’m sure I will figure something out soon but for now I just need to keep thinking.
