It's the adventure and exploration without the danger, you get to explore a strange new world without the perils of actually being there, but also you get to see everything that happens through the eyes of the characters from the safety of your arm chair!
And any sort of story will do, from gripping Murder mysteries, where you follow along in the detectives stead, uncovering clues and red herrings as you inch closer and closer to your killer. Or flights of Fantasy, which whisk you off to far away lands filled with wonders beings, who defy the norm at every turn. Or maybe a Horror is more your thing, where you're either creeping along in the killers shadow watching his deeds through unrepenting eyes, or you're scared alone with the next victim who jumps at even the tiniest creek of the floor boards.
What about a Romance, is this your story of choice. A love story which sweeps you away to a bubble pink world of hearts and heartbreak. Well whatever your desired choice of tale, from Wartime to Children's, from Period drama to Sci-Fi, we all have a story which fills us up, entertains, educates and thrills. And I'm not just talking about stories on the page.
Stories come in a myriad of forms, from books and films, to audio and photos. Even tales told around the campfire, or even passed down from one generation to the next. In fact without stories I wonder where we'd be today, not to mention the one's we write ourselves.
Everyday by living our lives we are adding to the story of us, from the tiny things we do, to the large decisions in life we make, each day we scrawl out a page in the book of us, and these tales intermingle with the people we surround ourselves with. Almost as if the whole world is one ginormous story added to by all of us, and I suppose in a way - it is!
So what makes the essence of a story? It suppose it could be a number of things, but whatever one or many aspects which appeal to you about a story, I guess is your answer!
