Musings: LIARS—All the Good Ones Are Natural Story Tellers

LIARS—All the Good Ones Are Natural
Born Story Tellers

When I was I kid, I used to entertain my friends and classmates with detailed and complicated (and sometimes embarrassing) narratives— stories

Some people called them lies—right to my face


So, today i'm asking myself: What's the difference between a story and a lie?

It's being a writer and entertaining masses who want to believe

Being able to tell a great story is being able to embellish just enough so the story is believable...Some may question, but if they don't know, they certainly can't challenge you.

Here is just a few of the great story tellers:


Jorge Francisco Isidoro Luis Borges

Mary Shelley

Charles Bukowski

Mary Ann Evans, known by her pen name George Eliot

Oscar Wilde

JK Rowling

Ernest Hemingway

Adeline Virginia Woolf
Agatha Christie

Gabriel García Márquez

There are so many more. WHO would you add?
