I think I have a good reading voice. I'm not as good as improving stories out loud though.
I try so
No, I don't think so. I once decided to get the program that would allow me to dictate my writing onto my pc, but I couldn't even do that! I'm better off staying directly connected to the keyboard.
Probably better! I'm still learning to be a writer of fiction. Poetry is the genre I'm most at home in.
The stories I have told - on tv and radio shows, on speaking engagements at universities and other places - are true stories. Since I never give a prepared speech, and what comes out orally is rather disorganized, I have to say I am nowhere as good orally as I am in writing.
No, I wish I was it is a great skill, when I was really young, before I knew how to write I used to tell my sister stories at bed time that I made up, and as I got older it turned into telling scary stories to a group of friends. Unfortunately the older I got the more I relied on writing the stories down. I am way too shy now to even attempt.
No. I want to revise as I tell, which can be very boring to the listener!
No. I can tell stories to children successfully, but to tell a story dramatically to adults takes skill that I have not honed.
Oh me thinks me can be a alot clumsy because I intend to wonder else where, but when it comes to children it's a joy to actually have them tell you what their character should be and wear and how to act. So from there for me no problem because I love to make up stories for the kids and have them imagine what they could see, okay myself as well.
No, I'm much better at writing.
Indeed I am. I'm animated and have always played to the crowd.
Oh, no. My voice is on the quiet side, so people are always telling me to speak up. Plus, I have no idea how to read with emotion, which is one of the reasons I suck at acting. So, by that verdict, I'm going to assume I could never be a preschool teacher.
Yes. I come from a very large Southern family and stories were terribly important as they are in the South. Everyone in my family told them and told them well. I speak in public a lot and use stories to underline a point or to base my comments in reality, and my anecdotes go over very well.
