Can I lie, you mean?
If I'm hell-bent on telling the story, I get the point across and people tend to believe me. However if I'm sitting down to tell a story, not so good at doing that.
Lies are easy, and they are nothing more than stories, but trying to sit down and tell a story everyone knows is a story doesn't work to well.
Probably not. I tend to get a little tongue tied and my creative mind only seems to work during quiet moments meditating or walking in the moonlight. I'm described as being "well spoken" but do not have the gift of creating stories "on the spot", unfortunately.
I'm fairly good at telling them - I started my career in radio news. But my voice isn't "broadcast quality" so I usually stick to print. I tend to be very matter of fact in my story telling (that's my news background), so if someone is looking for a flowery tale, they won't get it from me.
No! Absolutely no. I am far more articulate with my writing.
I am great at telling stories orally. I used to think I didnīt have the talent for this till I realized people actually paid a lot of atention to me when I started telling some story, normally a real one about some experience I had. But they never said anything, they just listened carefully smiling at times... And one day I asked about this to a friend of mine and she said she enjoyed a lot my stories as everybody else, what as I said amazed me and made me realize that when I am letting out my authentic me it is not only me who enjoys it.
I do a lot of public speaking and never write a speech. I get up and tell stories. I am lucky in that it comes natural to me.
I am working on that.
Well I was as a teenager when I enthralled children with my Ralph the Mouse stories made up on the spot...now not so sure
I love telling stories orally; usually ones I have read, but also of my past experiences within teaching with children - the children seem to enjoy hearing of others like themselves.
Not really. When writing, you have much more time to think about the story. Either way you can let your mind run free, but when writing you can go back and make changes, improving the story.
No, I am awful that way! :D I need to learn the art of being more eloquent while telling stories orally!
Whoa! No way! Writing is one thing, but speaking is another. I find that with a keyboard I can just zone out and get engrossed into my writing, but with speech, you have to think and speak on the spot.
Haha, I like to think I am. I haven't gotten the chance to read a lot of my own fiction to other people, but I've done lots of speeches and practice by reading my stuff aloud to myself.
Only with children... because I was a teacher.
I'm a reasonable storyteller, despite a slight speech impediment. I've been running games and interactive fiction for years, so I need to be!
