YouTube - What They Don't Tell You
W is for Write is Down

"Paper is to write things down we need to remember. Our brains are used to think." – Albert Einstein
My AtoZ theme this year is my YouTube journey with my new fiction channel, and all that I have learned - plus some free fiction - scroll down to the embedded vid for that.

Whatever you plan to say in your vid, write it down.

We are fallible creatures, and it never hurts to have a prompt. There are some people in this world who can decide what they are going to say and say it without any need for help whatsoever, I, for one, am not one of those people.

I find there are two ways to make sure I am on the right track (and this goes for presenting in general):
  1. Bullet points – these make for a freer style. Bullet everything we want to say and then move from one point to the next coming up with the exact words we want to use on the fly. This is good for a conversational feel.
  2. Writing a script – this is good for stories and for subjects that need exact details. This is what I use most, since I am telling stories and I want the words to be well chosen.

Now that I am becoming more practiced at making vids, I want to start to introduce more of the bullet point style for my intro and outros.

Do you prefer to bullet point things or write it all down when you need to speak in front of others, be it on video or live?

  2. I prefer bullet points for when I'm speaking in front of others. It's easier to lose my place in a full script. I wouldn't be able to record a video without something written down, though.


Thank you so much for reading. I love to hear from people. Please leave your comments below.
