Oh yes! My writing is a direct result of my Creek Indian oral saga tradition. In fact, my readers all comment that my books are like having a conversation with me. Most people don't know that the Uncle Remus Tales were originally morality stories told to Creek children, which African slaves living near by picked up.
I am quite articulate, so I have been told. Am I theatrical? Probably not, but I do have quite a decent speaking voice
I do not talk with a lot of people. Always I refer to my written texts. But if I talk or tell something people find that I am talking too much and are fastly getting bored from me. Then I never see them again.
I'd like to think so, as I do standup comedy.
Yes, I have always loved telling stories orally. I'm Irish. I was a member of Toastmasters but I do not enjoy the structure as much as I enjoy stream of consciousness story telling, it has more passion and emotion.
I prefer to write, sometimes when I speak I have so many ideas buzzing in my head I can't always get everything out coherently.
Yes. I am no longer afraid of audiences!
Yes Iam. In fact before i started to write I was a story teller, especially for children. I still do that in my church.
Some of my friends would say that I am.
I can make up a complete story out of the blue, I trip out my friends because I can start a story and have them all captivated, and then tell them Iím just playing! And they will be blown away because they were actually deeply evolved in the story.
According to my ten-year -old son, I'm a wizard at telling stories. According to some of my friends I'm a windbag. I don't edit well while orally telling a story, I suppose. Some people like all those details, but it drives a lot of my friends nuts.
Nope. Not at all.
Spoken Word is a personal addiction.
