Oh yeah, just ask my co-workers. One of my many past jobs was driving tour bus in Juneau, Alaska. Nothing like a captive audience for 3 hours.
Yes I am.
I think I am, though I tend to prefer writing them.
No. Iím not a bad on-the-spot story teller, but my pen is mightier than my tongue.
In a word no. I do not enjoy nor due I accell at public speaking. If I'm telling my kids a story that's one thing but if given the choice between public speaking and dental surgery, well let's just say I wouldn't be eating solid foods for a while.
Without the time to organize my thoughts the story is slapdash and frequently incomplete. I love thinking aloud, though.
I'm a schoolteacher but there's no way I can talk as well as I write. No, writing stories has always been my strength.
No, not really
I was in talk radio for nearly eight years, so telling stories comes natural. I took a feeble shot at writing comedy back in college and I was looking at an acting major entering the University of Buffalo, so when it comes to being on a stage, I feel really comfortable. During my tenure as sports director at WTAG (Worcester, MA), I was often asked to speak publicly and I really enjoyed those opportunities.
Most of the time. I'm a really good liar when I want to be.
I believe it's easier writing a story because with talking you trip up and you can't go into as many details as in books. I would say I can tell an interesting story orally but I am a better writer.
I doubt it, but I really like to listen to people who can talk, even trivial gossip, even lies.
Honestly, I couldn't tell a story orally to save my life. Many writers are introverts and live in their own noggins a lot and I am no exception. If I had to tell a story orally I'd be in a panic!
I'm awful at it. I can't even tell a joke.
