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.
Sometimes. Depends on the audience.
I'm terrible at telling stories orally.
No. For me, I need time to formulate a story, to roll around various scenes in my mind and pick which order I want to deliver them in. I also need time to come up with punchy dialogue or unexpected humor. I can't do it aloud.
Yes, very good (laughs).
No, I stutter, especially if its a lot of people that I do not know.
Yes. I've told stories all my life. My grandmother used to say I was a natural born liar.
It depends on how much time I have to prepare before the telling of the tale.
I would like to think so. I don't have much of a chance to tell stories orally.
I am a bit of a hermit because I like it that way at this point in my life. I would rather read and write than interact with groups of people. A small few people is what I like. I am uncomfortable in groups where I don't know the people.
I write long stories, never tried to tell one orally.
Yes. In fact, I think that the stories I tell orally are better than those I write.
