Uh--you'll have to ask my four year old about that. I think most of my oral stories involve princesses and some sort of animal.
Yes. I have enjoyed amateur theatre because of the opportunity to express myself through voice.
Yes if I have an interested (or captive) audience.
Yes, I love telling stories, sometimes to the shock and dismay of my wife, relatives and in-laws.
Presentation wise...yes. I was once told I had a knack for it. But as far as telling a story out loud, I can't really say at this point in my career. However, my kids used to think so.
I've always tried to just keep my communication skills up, so when I write I write the way I speak, usually. But I'm also somewhat of a linguist so alot of the time when I talk to people I end up speaking in their vernacular and I pick up on accents real quick.
But I don't tell the same kind of stories orally. So I guess it's really hard to say.
I often read aloud, and enjoy it, so I would have to say yes. Of course, this is for stories that I have had the time to refine and edit. I don't believe anyone would be as good in a spontaneous situation as one where there was time for correction.
Too good. It's hard for my fingers to catch up.
I really don't like to talk about my work because I'm unable to express myself as well as I do in writing.
Not really, but a few years as a stand-up comedienne did help me in that aspect and it help me get over stage fright. Talk about trial by fire!
Besides my goofy German accent? I think so.
Absolutely. Oral history is part and parcel of the Native American culture.
I'm good at reading them with feeling, not good at telling them and making it feel like just something I'm telling from memory.
