I'd like to think so. It depends on the crowd, really. When I'm at a formal do I tend to fade in the shadows, but with friends or a lively bunch I can't help entertaining them with hundreds of my stories.
Delivered a lecture once and bombed badly. A matter of pacing sentences. Next time - if ever!
Definitely. I am a good orator as well.
I believe I have a 50% success rate of doing so.
Children's stories I can come up with out of the blue, I do it for my kids all the time and I would say yes I am just as good at telling them. As for the suspense/thriller genre I write and re-write my stories, I never get it right first time around.
The stories I tell orally are much crazier than the ones I write down. So in some ways, I think I'm almost better at telling stories orally than I am at writing them down. But I pretty much only tell ridiculous stories, and I like to write about everything. So I guess I'm better at writing.
Not really. I think writers make the worst talkers because they are used to finding the right word and correcting themselves before presenting their story in full.
I'm afraid I am not good at verbally telling stories. I think that's why I enjoy writing so much! However, I can talk about my beliefs and experiences when it comes to the paranormal.
Yes, I am a teller of stories at family gatherings just ask my wife, sons, daughter, nieces, etc. They after years can quote back the stories I have told about my travels, some of these stories told too many times.
I love to tell stories but I don't think I'm as literate when I do. Still, anecdote is an esstential part of good speaking and I speak at conferences and other places lots! (-:
I am not a good story teller orally. I wish I was.
I can do orally story
