Talking Dictionary 771. Why Do People Write Stories?


771. Jude asked, "Mommy, why are there so many stories? The Bible has stories, Dr. Seuss has stories, my teacher has stories, and you and daddy have stories. Everyone has stories! I think there's too many stories. I couldn't ever read them all, even if I lived to be as old as you are. So why do people keep writing stories? Don't they know we don't have time to read them all?" She said, "You're right, honey. We can't possibly read them all in one lifetime. But people keep writing stories because they have something to say. And they think what they have to say will interest other people. So they share their stories." Jude said, "I have a story. Do you want me to share it with you?" She said, "Sure!" He said, "I saw Sis kissing a boy in the back of the bus today! For a long time!" 2.8
