Drowning In Words or Starving for Sentences?
When you are on stage or have to speak to a group of people, it is feast or famine.
You either have so many words that you can't stop talking or you are a rabbit in the headlights and the words won't come out. You know that you know what you want to say, it's just that the words have disappeared!
That's where the art of linking or Segues comes into play.
There are four different types of segues. One of my favourites is the final one Chaos.
This is where there is no link whatsoever but you force one in there anyway. They appeal to my sense of humour as well as adding an obvious transition.
If ever you have been stuck in a presentation or talking to someone and are not sure how to get to the next topic, these are brilliant. You can simply ignore what you were just talking about, come up with a whimsical statement or even something surreal and then launch into the next topic.
Monty Python did this all the time on their sketch show. You may be watching something about a family discussing Woody or Tinny words and then up comes "And now for something completely different" followed by something equally ridiculous like a Fish Slapping Dance.
They were so well known for this segue that it became the name of one of their movies.
The similar one you will hear more often is when the host says, "Without further ado" and then changes the topic completely.
