Hello People of the Internet,
I have completed my first assignment for my first ever Grad Class – IST 646 – Storytelling for the Information Professional.
This week we had some great reading assignments and our first Exercise was to record ourselves telling a story. It had to be either a myth, tall tale, or a personal story.
I chose the tall tale of “Babe the Blue Ox.” I picked this story because I’ve been thinking about my Grandpa a lot lately. He passed away last November a few days before Thanksgiving. He was a man of few words, but the stories that he told were always so amazing! He was the first person to ever tell me the story of Paul Bunyan. I remember the first time he told it to me, I thought Paul was a real person! Haha! I wanted to go meet him! I’m sure I didn’t tell the story as good as my Grandpa did, but I gave it a shot!
