Ha-ha, Yes when I want to. But I think my brother will always win that one.
I like to think so. I am a storyteller by nature, I can't answer a question with out telling the asker some additional information, usually in story form.
Creative stories? Not at all.....As for non-fiction, I feel more comfortable relaying information in writing.
When I was younger, it was much easier for me to tell stories orally.
I'm still able to communicate stories orally, but I do so rarely.
I am more comfortable writing.
My husband says yes and I say no. But I'm funnier orally. I'm good at making people laugh. In fact, I'd have to say that being a writer has made me a better oral storyteller. I know how to ratchet up the tension.
I don't know if I'm good at telling stories orally. I usually don't have a problem keeping people's attention if that's any indication!
I tell my students that writing is ninety percent re-writing. My work doesn't just flow into some immediately acceptable form. I lay in the basics and then go back to fix and fix and fix most every aspect. (I illustrate this approach in depth in my book Milieu.)
I enjoy speaking about the craft of writing and I believe do that very well, but I would not characterize myself as a good story teller. As my Grampa Gray character who reads and openly enjoys his old fashioned, bumpity, bump, bump, pun-laden, rhyming verse I seem to put on a show enjoyed by most folks in the second half of there life.
I'm probably a little better at oral stories than I am at written ones.
yes, had training in public communication.
I once opened a fortune cookie and it said: "You tell long boring stories with no point to it. LOL! Me working in film and tv for so long, I always have an experience to tell. Sometimes I have written down these experiences. I may use them later. Yes, I pride myself on spinning a yarn. If you can tell a good story to those around you and they keep coming back for more, you have mastered the oral tradition.
I am. Except for that annoying talking with my hands thing that I do.
Oh yes. Being an extrovert and a professor, I love an audience, so telling stories gives me an opportunity to be creative as well.
Better. I'm a natural ranter
