What makes a good storyteller, in your opinion? Are your favorite storytellers people you know or writers you admire?
A good storyteller has a grasp on language. They must be able to write or speak really well. A storyteller also knows their audience. If they know their audience, then they can connect with their audience. Connecting to an audience is very important for someone who is telling a story. Usually, they want the audience to ask them back for an encore.
I really miss that show “Storytellers” that was on VH1. Why isn’t it on more often? Is it to make room for “Bye Felicia”?
Some of the best storytellers that I know . . . well, I know them in real life. Mike from the tattoo shop is one of the best storytellers around. I can’t wait to go back to get another tattoo just so I can listen to him tell a story. Is it weird to just sit around a tattoo shop waiting for a story? Well. . . maybe but whatever. The story will be worth the wait and strange looks.
