Giving Readings

Charlie Stross gives advance about how authors can give a public reading. To summarize, read a 25 minute story, then a shorter 15 minute story, then 5 minutes from something unpublished.

That sounds good, but it’s really hard for a performer to be engaging for longer than 25 minutes, if only because the audience becomes fidgety. Another problem is that readings don’t have visual aids or accompanying audio.
