I believe I am gifted in storytelling, be it oral or written. The principles of storytelling are the same: hook 'em, then reel them in.
Sometimes but I write much better than I speak.
Actually I am not the best speaker. I think sometimes I come off of quiet, dumb or insane but hopefully my writing shows much greater depth. I have always been much better at writing my feelings than speaking them. Although I do have some moments when I can convey them to others.
I'm better at telling stories orally. I just try to harness some of that awesome power when I sit down to put the story on paper.
Yes, I tell this great story called the Hawaiian Hell Trip. It was my first and last visit to Hawaii. I will never go back again.
No. I'm a great reader, though, when it comes to book signings. I have an acting background, so this is easy and fun for me to read my stories in public. I have a problem when I'm telling someone about the story that I'm going to drag on too long, that I'm going to give too much away. So I really try to get people to buy the book and read it for themselves!
Not certain about that...you'd have to ask someone who listens to me tell them.
Equally good but in an entirely different way!
I do not think so.
Sometimes, it depends on the subject. My experiences in life imitate a good fiction novel in some aspects (model, teacher, writer).
So I have been told. In every creative endeavor that I undertake from all form of writing to painting, to my music it is always about telling a story.
Not particularly. I'm not exactly eloquent and I find the story loses steam when it's pocked with, "and then", throughout the telling.
Yes. A Good narration helps to set you out to the path of writing. I used to thrill my mom and sisters with what I have read and I earned the nickname - Raconteur when I started my career.
