    Comments: Ok, while the round is conceded to you, here are some quick notes.

    I'm not sure if you're reading something scripted or not. I'm going to assume you weren't.

    Write/type (at least) your first speech down. It saves you time that you waste doing things like rambling or pausing to collect your thoughts. Those precious seconds build up to a whole lot of arguments you could've been putting down against her.

    (I never give out solid 30s when it comes to speaker points, but since she conceded the round to you, I default 30 for the winner... just a note.)
    Besides the obvious lack of a constructive -

    Don't be afraid to speak directly from a scripted speech. You can read it straight from a word document or print it out.

    Debate, while at times does call for making quick fire arguments (line-by-line) in the heat of the moment, doesn't rely solely on such strategies. When you do this to yourself you end up wasting a lot of time thinking of a way to word your arguments and piece them together. If you sit down and write what you want to say, you give a more confident delivery and you don't risk saying something that might come to haunt you later in the round.

    (Whenever a team concedes the round to their opponent I give no speaks to the team who conceded. It's common practice.)

    The decision is for the Proposition: Jeffrey Twitty

    Reason for Decision:

    Concession by the Neg.

    Presumption shifts Aff.
