Since rants kind of derailed any potential chance to talk about this...
I figure I'd bring this up on the forums to get a general idea of how people feel, what they do, what they do not do, and so on.
While I always encouraging seeking answers IC for questions such as stage fright, performance anxiety, and imposter syndrome I think there's also a part of us that can discuss and reason it out on an OoC platform.
This mostly stems from me being very comfortable to roleplay an idea, concept, or what have you.
Just... not being comfortable at all when it comes to a sermon, ritual or prayer.
I could do a presentation on combat, or about a class, or on any of the theocracies scattered across Achaea.
But trying to write anything I listed above for me just causes anxiety and a lot of uncertainty, despite knowing not a lot of bad can really come out of it.
Anyone who previous hated ritualism/sermonism/performing that has gotten over that initial hurdle or fright have any tips? Just band-aid method it and do it quick, short, sweet and with my eyes closed?
Hopefully some discussion will come of this!
