I get the timing and tone wrong telling a story vocally. I tend to get distracted after writing a page or two, so hard to say about written.

I think I write good stories, haven't had a lot of people critique it other than grammar stuff. I never made up a story vocally, or summarize stories unless if I'm writing it down (I suck at that kind of stuff sadly)

I would really like to test my storytelling skills, but I don't have the time for that, I consider myself decent at it but I don't know if that's true

If by storytelling you mean lying then I challenge you to lie yourself out of a real life situation better than I.

Well no.


Technically, all fiction is a lie. It's not true, and you know it's not true. That's a textbook lie.

Something that is not true is not inherently deceptive, isn't the intention of deception what makes a lie?

Nope. Case in point: you look at a card, then show it to your friend and say "this is the king of clubs" when your friend can clearly see it is the three of diamonds.

Did you lie?

Pretty much everyone would agree that yes, you lied. However, you did not deceive your friend, because he could see it was the three of diamonds. And you did not intend to deceive your friend, because you showed him that it was the three of diamonds. And you were not mistaken, because you had already looked at it and knew it was the three of diamonds.

Clearly, the intent to deceive is not necessary for something to be a lie.
