The "Write" Word Writing your speech can be sheer agony for the person experiencing writer’s block or who simply doesn’t know how to start. Sometimes it helps to assemble the body of your speech first, then write the introduction around it. You don’t have to necessarily "write" your speech. In fact, it is usually better if you just outline it, remember the main points and ad lib the details. You may want to memorize part of your introduction if you are including a quote or anecdote though. Know Your Stuff You don’t have to necessarily memorize your speech word for word, but it does help if you have outlined your speech and remember the main points. It is SO BORING to watch someone read off of a sheet of paper or even note cards. Not only is it distracting, but it is also difficult for the speaker to, as actors say, "get off the page". This means that they have a mechanical sound, as if they are reading, instead of a natural flow of words. Know your topic inside and out so that you can speak on it easily and with confidence, but just .mit the main points to memory and fill in the rest on your own. Engage Your Audience Good delivery of your speech is just as important as the speech itself. In your delivery, you want to engage your audience, get them excited and interested. Eye contact is one way to draw them in. Look around at your audience, and get eye contact with people while you speak. Gestures will also add impact to your delivery. Use big gestures sparingly, but moving your arms, hands and head will stop you looking too rigid. Don’t be afraid to move around during your delivery. Avoid moving too much, as this can be a distraction, but you can use a change in position, such as stepping into another area, as a way to signify a transition to another point in your speech.
