I've mentioned before that the writing program at
The University of Nebraska at Omaha requires
(among other things, of course)
a semester of theater and a semester of oral interpretation.
Part of successful writing is the public reading of your work,
which you'd better know how to do well.

And if you don't, you'd better learn fast, right? :)

That's why I believe everyone should have a 'My old gran' in their lives. It helps us prepare for this sort of thing :)
