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.
This is a very interesting question. The one thing that you hear when orally telling stories is voice inflection. Even though you can describe this in the body of the story, few things can substitute for seeing it happen in front of you.
I am adept at live interviews. I am not a "story teller."
That would have to be answered by someone who listens. I give presentations on history and the feedback has been very positive. It takes a little humor, a few facts and a good blend of BS.
I'm GREAT at telling stories orally because the only thing I love better than the written word, is the spoken word. I'm usually very long-winded in my writing. This is because I'm long-winded in my speech. Some of my favorite days have been spent reading aloud to children and telling a good story!
Here's An Article I Wrote About A String Of Uncanny Experiences That Happened To Me At, And How They Were Coincidental To Some Things In My Life At The Time.
Now that I think about it, it reads like a story - but it's all true!
Curiously enough, no my oral abilities are far less. Seems my hand can grasp & relate the information far easier and way better than my mouth ever could.
I think so, yes. I've had practice reading to my kids!
The stories I tell orally are more factual, I try *not* to persuade my audience. Somewhere along the way I developed the ability to travel down different avenues before arriving at a conclusion that links all the different routes. It would be a lot of detail to keep track of to listen to me.
Very good. I have to act out all the words with actions and the tones verbally. I've always done that. Been a bit too dramatic perhaps at times.
