Yes, probably better than my writing.
I'm not great at off-the-cuff story telling, but love to do poetry readings and dramatic monologs. I'm a firm believer that most poetry combines so many of the same elements as music that it must be heard out loud. There are people who can read the score of a symphony and hear the music in their head. They are exceptionally rare and I don't rank among them. When a poem really grips me I find I must read it out loud. I am never more fully alive than when I am sharing a poem verbally. People who never read poetry are sometimes astonished that it's not the boring sing-song stuff or nursery-rhymes they remember from school. It comes alive to them too.
I've been told my only problem is laughing before the punch line. My father was an expert at this, but I don't have the control. "Those who can't do, write or teach."
i wouldnt say so. i dont mind reading one on one, but i dont like large crowds of people listening to me. it makes me nervous.
I am a pretty good oral story teller - since I dislike bogging stories down with too much description. I can also do voices and facial expressions that will add to my oral tale.
I don't think I am as good at telling stories orally.....yet! Eventually I hope to cultivate that skill!
Yes, when i can write them every time i said they will be.
That's a negative.
I can relate experiences fairly well, so I guess one might say that I can tell stories.
Like many writers, I am not a very good speaker.
I think i am. when i tell stories, i describe the place, give the introductions, details, ect. my style of oral story-telling closely resembles my written story-telling. it takes long for me to tell stories, though.
Yes, I can tell a good story, as well. It's almost more fun that way because I can give different audio voices to the characters, change the pitch and tone of my voice to carry the story along.
It depends on how much pressure I'm under to tell it quickly. I tend to be longwinded...
No, not at all. Me, the person, is vastly different to me, the writer. I cannot tell a good story or relate a joke, I'm hopeless. I have to write it out.
