How do you know what you are hearing is the truth? Do you think if the same story has been told over and over by different people it will be told in the same way? Of course not! Storytelling lets us hear about a story in different ways to get more than one perspective on what we find to be important.
The Loch Ness monster has been a story told for years and years. In Scotland, deep in the waters of Loch Ness there lives a monster, a very large monster who was considered the size of a football field. This monster was called the Loch Ness monster and it is said that the Loch Ness monster would feed off of small children roaming around the water. One day, a young boy did not believe in such a story, thought it to be a myth. So he journeyed out to the lake in search for the Loch Ness monster. Finally, he came face to face with the monster. Scared, but not doing anything he just stared at the monster and the monster was happy he did not run off scared and became friends with the boy. The young boy then ran off to his village to tell everyone his experience with the Loch Ness monster and how the monster was not at all what they thought.
Storytelling is a huge tool used to get a specific purpose across and reach a certain audience. Every story has a purpose and every person will receive a different point to the story. Not one person thinks the same as another so retelling of stories is so important because it shows you the different thought processes of people. Having a purpose is key to getting a good hold of your audience. Getting your audience connected to what you have to say is extremely important. By getting them connected you are getting your story out there and you are getting your purpose known.
