Story Tellers

Growing up, “story tellers” was the nice way to identify liars. For example, instead of saying, “You’re lying,” one would be told, “You’re telling a story!” I get easily bored by a person who detours to Chicago on their way to Florida, having started out from Connecticut. This person seems to think that their listener is not sharp enough to read between the lines. It’s disingenuous, in nature, and it also creates too many opportunities for embellishments. Recognizing my impatience with this, it is my greatest struggle in editing my own writing. To not bore myself to death, so as not to bore my reader to death is ever my goal! This, written tongue in cheek, in response to today’s writing prompt, is replete with cliches, as it’s my lazy way of getting to the point. Grace.
