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.
no, I take too much time.
No, I am able to think more when I write then when I speak.
yes I am
I like to think I am. I do well when asked to speak and usually don't need notes. I can weave a story for whatever situation I find myself in. In other words, just try to shut me up once I start talking.
No, I am a very shy person and I let my writing do the talking for me.
I believe that all people have a "calling" in life...a "Gift from God", if you will. Frequently, it is hard to identify it because you are so close to yourself. I have been a story-teller from childhood who always held my "audience" spell-bound, but didn't realize until adulthood that that was my "Gift", and that it could acutally pay money (as an Author).
No! If I were, I'd be an actor! Seriously, sometimes I can get a good story off, but I'm not a confident oral storyteller at all.
I get by in my public readings. The fans seem to enjoy it, at least. I am almost never happy with my readings, though.
I have told some good fright stories around the campfire, but I feel I can draw my audience in closer and deeper threw my words on paper.
Not really, but on occasion I do tend to spring a tale or two.
