the crowd stared at me and i realised with a shock that this audience was expecting something from me… something I had yet to give them.

The audience was waiting for the movie. In the meantime, they were texting, and eating popcorn except for one couple in the back row. They were making out, and when the trailers stopped running and the movie started playing, they didn’t even notice. They were too caught up in each other, more willing to stare into each other’s eyes than at the screen.

I like it. I like to watch it. I like to hear it. I like to be it.

The audience sat, their mouths agape as the story unfolded in front of them. The words danced and sang, and there was noting anyone could do to make it stop. They were all under the spell now, doomed to sit and watch for all eternity.

Today I will face my firing squad, my audience, my students. Sometimes they are eager to adore, other times they can’t wait to load, aim, & fire. I hope that this morning is leading to a happy afternoon.

Jensen jerked back when the woman started to moan and cough. He was resting on his elbow staring at her with wide eyes, but suddenly he looked up and saw him standing there with a shotgun. He had an audience. “What are yo doing with my woman?”

Sometimes what all one needs is audience to one’s life, so we know someone else will remember us.

The world is my audience. Every day when I wake up I perform. I take a bow after making the coffee. I dart in and out of traffic and take home the first place trophy when I arrive at work on time. I speak at the meeting and am handed a bouquet of flowers. If I make it home and to dinner without fail, I get a standing ovation.

there was an audience in the room. He hadn’t thought about what he was going to say, but now they were looking at him. He felt a bead of sweat roll down his forehead. Is this what he wanted? Now that the attention was on h

I like and hate audiences, Like them when i’m doing something I’m good at, hate them when I’m not… and my inner critic it telling me that this isnt great…

i do,i think without considering the possible audience around me. i act and i speak and i am without the concern of caring who is watching.

An audience is your way to success in the information age. Today, we can get our message out, regardless of our wealth. You can get an audience. You can do what you love, if only you can share, if only you can give it to your audience. This is the market for entrepreneurs today. This is the key to doing

I stood and stared at the live audience in front of me waiting for me to begin singing. Its scary having a lot of people watch every move you make and if you mess up, to laugh at you.
By Eden URL on 03.28.2011
Audience to me is a very frightening word, i’ve always had a form of stage fright for some reason. I mean I like to make people laugh and conversate but can’t stand all eyes on me. I would rather have a crowd than an audience if that makes sense.
By Micah URL on 03.28.2011
When you’re in front of an audience is when you have the chance to express yourself and be whoever or whatever you wish. However, being in front of an audience is one of the biggest fears people have. While proformning, an audience is what allows your nerves to get the best of you.

There was an audience before the main street building. they were crowded around, looking at the dead body lying on the streets. they didn’t know who it was. Their face tangled up in fear and their skin deteriorating. who was it? why did they jump from that building? Was their life really that bad?
By Misty goes Rawr :D on 03.28.2011
she’s the audience he’s most unsure of. eyes following action, their words are lost in the distance. distorted. what i meant wasn’t what you heard, the words are still a tight fist in my mind.
none of the shadows part way to allow the light illumination. their faces are obscured, lost. just like each glance and the half forgotten applause from other times and places.

Everyone needs and audience. Even if you are a beggar, you want someone to listen to you. Just like me, an empty room sucks. Nothing turns people off more then an empty room, so the next time you see someone, be their audience.

what I neeed is a glass of water, simple and filled. I would drink it till it’s empty and then refill. Throw in a flower. Throw in a frog. The frog will swim around the flower and make a pretty picture. It is now breeding a goldfish, with a flaring tail that swirls around. Frog and goldfish will get along. When they tire of swiming. . .they will eat the flower together.

Having an audience is a scary thought. Being able to speak in front of people often makes my head very warm and I suddenfly very hungry.
Others only seem to be alive on stage or in front of others, joking and being the center of attention.

So you sit there like you belong with this group of people. In MY audience with your cold eyes, your cold hands.. and your eyes glazed over like you’re long gone. Just go. Leave.. Get out of here. And take me with you.

Everyone is looking at you. They are expecting you to perform and entertain them. They are your students, your theater crowd, and they wait with anticipation. As you catch your breath and blink into the lights, you realize that you are in control. You are the one who captivates.
By kb on 03.28.2011
An audience is a collection of people there to be entertained and to enjoy the spectacle that they will see. They can be happy, sad, indifferent but they will always be there to enjoy the show. It is important to make the audience happy but if it is too difficult, a clever preformer can become a fool in front of many people which is enough to dent the confidence of even the cockiest showman

So, I was performing for this audience, and they were super critical. They kept heckling me, and laughing at me, and they even wanted me to get off the stage. But I didn’t listen to them. I didn’t care what they thought. They are all just a bunch of idiots anyway.
By Zac on 03.28.2011
when you look out into an audience, you see all those faces. there are a lot of things to hide behind in this modern world–computer screens, fonts, online personas–but when you’re standing in front of people like that there’s nothing to hide. i think the one thing people have forgotten these days is that other people can see right there you. we should all be a little more honest. we should all

The audience entirely agreed with itself. Though initially quite nervous to commit to such a task, it had made a successful appearance.

In the time it took her to get on stage, there were already around one thousand audience members there to see her sing. She could barely keep her heart from pounding out of her chest. The piano started and she starred at the people that had come to see her.

people watching a play or concert. sitting in chairs. in the dark. laughing. watching. smiling. awaiting the next move. talking to their neighbors about the excitement or bore.standing. cheering. clapping. greeting people afterwards for photos and dinner.

How big an audience do I need, he thought. Reading his poems out loud in public, for the first time, felt scary. Hey ho, and he stepped out on to the stage. to a roar of applause, from all the friends who had come to support him. He felt better at once.

They follow me into the bathroom. Claws squeeking against the wet tile floor. Someone else’s hair wraps around our big toe. Shit. Spit on one of them and watch the other lick it off. Meow.

there’s always an audience. if ever you find yourself in a room without one, consider the following: your memory never leaves. your memory of what you do is your audience. and it is your harshest critic. you will be judged, if only by yourself.
By james on 03.28.2011
For the past 21 years, I had been nothing but a spectator. I watched people taking lead, achieving feats… I cheered for them, hated their opponents… like an audience to a spectacular event.
BUT, now is the time I Rise… it’s time I be the performer.. I get the cheering… I get the applause..
It’s time I TRY… not for the Result I will get but for ME

“Shhh,” the lady two seats over quieted the people in front of her who were settling into their seats. “The show is about to start.” “Wow,” I turned to my husband. “She means business.” “Yeah,” he said as the lights darkened. We hushed as we waited for the curtain to rise. And then, “Ting Tink Ting Tink,” a cellphone chirped. “Hello?” the “business” lady said. “Yeah, I know I didn’t pick up the dry cleaning, Elmer.” The conductor lifted his baton high and the orchestra began the overture. “No I didn’t forget that your meeting is tomorrow.” The music swelled. “Yes, I will get it first thing,” she fought to be heard over the music. Suddenly, the conductor silenced the musicians, turned around, and waited. Finally, she realized that the entire audience was looking at her. “Uh, Elmer,” she stammered. “I have to go.” She closed her phone, put it away and folded her hands in her lap. “You may continue,” she decreed. “Thank you,” the conductor replied. “But first, either leave, or turn off your cellphone.” The entire audience gave him a standing ovation.
