I am better at writing a story as opposed to telling a story orally, although I enjoy doing both.
I think so. And I get tired of talking sometimes. So it's interesting to see how it looks in written form. Or vice versa. It's also interesting to tell a story and see how folks react, how interested they are to hear it. What are they interested in? How do they relate? Is it just about me? How can I include them and their ties, their interests in the story to connect to more people? And as I share a story, to notice how it grows and changes because of the sharing with others, with listeners, with people who question, who add their own story and experience. So the story is not the same as I tell it over time. It takes on a life and a growth of its own.
I like to think so. I try to put in detail to really bring the story home without going on too much and losing my audience. It's hard not too get too intricate at times when you are passionate about what you are telling.
No, not at all. I like to hurry up and get the the end. Lol
I think I ramble a bit more if I am talking so most likely not.
Yes! I love telling stories and bringing in voice and facial expressions to the work. It is wonderful getting the immediate reaction and the reader's thoughts about it afterwards.
Yes!! I think that's why I enjoy writing. Basically, I'm just telling stories like I always have!
Few can compare. When telling a story I hold the audiance, by intonation, eye contact, jesture, body movement, humor and I can change a story as I go to fit the crowd or person. Thank you Captain Kangaroo, Buckskin Bill and Polycarp Pecos #2
Yes, very good. I'm better at speaking and public singing (entertaining) in the right venue. I write songs, sing well & harmonize beautifully.
Absolutely not. I ramble. That's why revision is important to my writing!
Yes, humour or sarcasm can often get their attention. With a participating audience who are enthralled by the character's point of view.
I think I'm fair at telling stories aloud, but I'm better in the written form, because I have more opportunities to tweak and fine-tune the message.
