As a child I was told ‘telling porkies’, ‘telling stories’ was a bad thing. Now I understand that creating tales is a crucial way to communicate. Like any tool it can be used for good or ill. There is power in a story well told; through entertainment, by stealth, it can convey an idea, and set in motion a course of actions in the listener or reader.
