Battles Near and Far

I have to write a paper for this year's Chief of Army History Conference. It's in October, so I've got just three months to write it. I better get cracking.

Unexpectedly, most of the papers being presented are about recent wars like East Timor and Somalia. The keynote speaker is Major General Julian Thompson, which should be very interesting.

Well, congratulations, they must think your work is very hot. That means you do a talk? Are you nervous?

Yes, I have to give a talk. If last time is any indication, there will be about 1,000 people there. Last time they liked my presentation style. I have a good public speaking voice and made effective use of visual aids.

However, the topic was part of my thesis and the research was piling up around me here. It did involve looking at some things earlier than intended but otherwise, no special effort. This time the topic is a bit off the track and I need to do some research.

So, yes, I am a bit nervous.

Fear is the spur
