I'm back from my very first lecture! And it went well. The students were very friendly, and although I can't really remember anything I told them (too nervous) I remember I got applause, and a small crowd looking at my books and asking questions in the end, and some people saying it was a good lecture, and thanks for not swearing (I think I did a bit, actually - and gesticulate wildly and I think I danced a little jig at some point... possibly).
I didn't realise that I had to speak in a lip-readable way, meaning standing right at the front and not turning back to check on my slides, but that turned out to be a good thing because otherwise I'd have hidden behind the lectern with a microphone and tried to be invisible.
I wish I'd had more time to chat to students afterwards and give some advice on drawing characters and such, because I kind of just got started, but I had to leave right after lunch...
Now I am worn out from five and a half hours travel (and the same yesterday to get there).
Cornwall was sunny, warm and full of very breathable air, and I got to visit some very friendly horses, budgies and people. All good I think. And it's still a lovely college, is Falmouth.
