Telling Stories

“People think that stories are shaped by people. In fact, it’s the other way around.”

~Terry Pratchett

Stories have been part of humanity since the beginning of time– communicating ideas and information, passing on important lessons, and providing explanations for the world around us. Stories have inspired feelings of wonder, joy, and sorrow throughout the generations.

Even though most of our history is written and recorded in some way, the art of storytelling continues to thrive! These pages are where I will share my thoughts about storytelling, writing, and some favourite tales I’ve stumbled across in my wanderings.
