Your purpose is to make your audience see what you saw, hear what you heard, feel what you felt. Relevant detail, couched in concrete, colorful language, is the best way to recreate the incident as it happened and to picture it for the audience.
First ask yourself: What is the worst that can happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then proceed to improve on the worst.
There is only one way... to get anybody to do anything. And that is by making the other person want to do it.
Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.
