Still enjoying Share-a-Story month? Travel to new worlds, even if it’s just in your imagination
So we’re half-way through Share-a-Story month 2019, and this year’s theme is travel.
You might think that travel only means getting on a plane or a ship or a train to go some place other than where you usually live: but actually, whenever you read or tell a story, you’re also taking a journey. You can explore different ways to see the world, taking a journey without physically going anywhere. Many stories are about journeys, inner or outer.
So what makes a story, anyway?
Well, you can’t have a story without characters, although they don’t always have to be human. Most stories are about a main character, or protagonist, their friends, their enemies, and some kind of challenge they are facing.
