the vibe that creates the story tells me if it good for oral thought
I have been told that this is true
I can tell a story orally with copious amounts of preparation. I am totally worthless as an extemporaneous speaker.
I have been in the past; further, I enjoy reading stories, including those I have written, and also enjoy telling stories to my children that I make up along the way.
No. I'm a lousy communicator in the verbal sense. I'm a thinker, and thinkers have to take time to think things through. When I tell a story "on-the-go," I feel that I miss too many important details.
Now, if I am prepared, and I am giving a talk or giving a speech on something, then I am good at public speaking. I have always been good at that. But when I envision the oral story-teller, I envision someone who makes something up as they go along, and I am not good at that.
No, I was the Charlie Brown of my Drama class, I actually got an F!
But now...I am as bold as a lion and I know I can do that!
Definitely!!! I love to weave a tale, especially for children, and watch their faces relax and tense and their eyes take on that dreamy quality that lets me know they are totally with me.
I don't think so. I have a hard time making up stories for my granddaughter, I'd rather read to her.
Sometimes though, we play a game and tell each other stories. They are usually silly and make no sense, but we have fun and laugh a lot.
no, getting there a little bit at a time.
If I'm around a campfire with a case of beer and some friends, sure. If I'm at a podium or at the head of a classroom? Forget about it. I write because I don't like to speak so much.
I am fairly good at telling stories to children....sometimes when I read one of my books to a class of young children, invariably one of the children will want the story to continue past the end and that is when I make up different situations for the character and tell it to them.
No, I don't feel adequate telling stories orally.
I can actually tell the stories easily since I can add the vocal inflections.
