Dax, thanks so much for agreeing to this interview! Let’s get started. You’ve called Failing Sky a genderqueer graphic novel. How is genderqueerness woven into this project?

book-of-flights said: Hello Neil! Do you have any tips when it comes to public speaking as a writer and beating stage fright? I'm reading one of my stories in front of an audience tomorrow, which I've never done before, and I'm terrified.

neil-gaiman:

I do!

You can find my tips on making a speech to an audience here: http://neil-gaiman.tumblr.com/post/41653204206/6-tips-for-speaking-in-public

And as for readings, the last time I was asked, I said, on my blog:

Read it as if you’re telling a story. Read it as if you’re interested and you care. And, the biggest and most important one, vary the tune.

I heard a young writer reading some of his own work in public a few weeks ago, and every sentence had exactly the same tune, the same rising and falling cadences. They all ended on the same note. The beat that ran through the whole passage did not change from first to last. It was hypnotically dull.

Listen to people read who are good at it. BBC Radio Four Extra and BBC Radio 4 (here’s the Radio 4 Readings website)are a great source of an ever-changing series of books and stories, fiction and non-fiction, all read aloud and read aloud well. Listen to the tune, where voices go up or down. Listen to what makes a reader speed up or slow down — listen to what keeps you interested and where you lose interest. And do it as they do — change the tune, change the pace, keep interested and it will keep interesting.

But mostly my advice is this: just do it. Enthusiasm and willingness to do it counts for most of it, and you learn by doing it and get better from doing it.

I’ve been reading in front of audiences now for almost 20 years. I’ve got significantly better in that time, mostly because I’ve done it so much. You learn as you go. You get better as you go. Practice makes if not perfect then at least pretty decent.
