Video Calls for Writers (Or Anyone Who Is Not a Supermodel)
from Tania Casselle, ASJA
Writers don’t always like being in front of the camera. We're more at home behind the scenes, right? But if you’re preparing for a Skype chat in the ASJA Virtual Client Connections event (or for any other video meeting) here are some tips to help you look and feel better on screen.
ASJA has provided Skype technical advice already but many people worry about how they appear. I often have Skype meetings and it's true that we all usually look less than our adorable best. The good news is that you quickly forget about it once you're engaged in the video conversation. The person on the other side of the screen will also look less than divine and they know it too. Nobody is competing over who looks most pasty and podgy. So relax, set the stage and then focus on substance over style.
