|Are you equally good at telling stories orally?
From memory? Forget it! (Sorry, pun unintended). The only story I can remember is Ernest Hemingway's 6-worder (For sale: baby shoes, never worn). I can't even remember any of my 60-worders but then I've never tried to memorise them. I've been told I have a good reading voice (anyone listening to my podcasts can judge for themselves; although one listener from the US complimented me on my accent which was a real thrill!).
Definitely not. I don't talk much. Especially stories. Sometimes I do, but it's like 'And then... how was that called... muffin? No...' I bet you wouldn't want me to tell you even a short story orally.
I hope so, but I think I really find my stride in writing. I've always been better with words that speaking (although I do enjoy talking). Writing can take the awkwardness or risk out of the situation, and is certainly more comforting.
I think I am fealty long winded when it comes to telling stories orally, haha.
I actually have not had to tell a story orally recently, I think if I have notes written down somewhere I would, I'm better with debating than anything else, because I'm very passionate about what I believe in, other than that, I'm not really sure.
it depends on the story
No, when i'm alone I can read aloud fine, but when i read orally to a group I tend to stutter my words, and lose my spot a lot.
You should ask my family and friends but I most definitely think so!! I have been a skilled story teller for many years. My professional work in talent development gave me strengths in holding the attention of audiences through the spoken word.
I'm not much for on-the-spot talking but if I get two to five seconds to map out what I plan to say, I think I'm a pretty good story teller. (then again I've had a few years experience of training people at I job I worked at where I'd run on and on telling stories of things that have happened at the job site.)
Absolutely not. I murder the punchlines of jokes too.
It's a very different skill and who knows whether people think you a genius or a bore.
i wish i was! writing is my strong point.
Yes. I do a great deal of public speaking and the feedback I get from these is always positive.

From our initial email right through to our Zonta International Womens Day Breakfast, Kay Danes would have to have been the most willing and helpful guest speaker that we have ever had the pleasure to organize. Kay helped contributed enormously to the breakfast by contacting many media avenues such as newspapers and radio stations not to mention her connections with Rotary and other notable charities. These actions, on her behalf, certainly boosted our guest numbers on the day. Kay spoke both personally and professionally and was a natural at captivating her audience. After the breakfast Kay remained to talk with guests and personally sign books for them, for which they were ever so grateful. We can confidently recommend Kay as a key note speaker for any such occasion. ZONTA Club of Southern Gold Coast Tweed Inc

I have been told by many of my peers that I can describe in my words (orally) scenes that they can visualise clearly in their heads. I walk away leaving them with indelibly stamped images, characters, scenes and adventures in their mind's eye.
I suck horribly at telling stories orally. Especially if I don't have anything to reference or use. I tend to avoid it, because I always mess it up. If I could somehow train myself to get better, than I would attempt to tell stories more often.
