Is there a type of story that you prefer to tell?
I look for stories that are unique, that people
haven’t heard before. I also tend towards funny
stories, or stories with very memorable and distinct
characters. I only tell stories that I love, never
something that would bore ME as a child!
radio audience appreciate you story as much as a
Good question! Some storytellers sound great and
entertaining recorded, other are great performers
but sound boring and terrible when just listening to
them. I have heard some good recordings of me
telling, but I prefer a live audience, as I think I
am a very visual performer, and that eye contact and
movement are important to many of my stories.
there anything else you would like to say?
Just that if anyone is interested in becoming a
storyteller I have three suggestions:
1 - Choose a story YOU love, because your enjoyment
will come through when you tell it.
2 - Even if you are unsure or nervous onstage,
perform anywhere and anyplace you can (open mikes,
living rooms, etc.) You will get better and less
nervous which each performance… trust me …I was not
always at ease onstage!
3 - You can always go slower and be louder!
