WHY I support and encourage Authors

The Ape has spoken – you will obey. Perfectly put Chris. 🙂

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I believe Sir Terry Pratchett may have had an excellent point when he surmised that OUR species of Hominid survived, while all the others didn’t, because we were Story Telling Apes, or at least better at telling, and learning through, stories!

I’m not the only one who thinks so, “Our brains are structured to make sense of the world in the form of narratives – stories. Not only that, we are primed to believe the stories we hear.” see the re-blogged post last Thursday HERE!

I concede that there are probably other factors involved as well, but storytelling was (and hopefully still IS) a significant part of our species survival strategy.

If we cease to tell and learn from stories, then we too may become extinct because without them we will have created our very own ELE (Extinction Level Event).

    So true if we don’t tell and learn from stories… We too will be extinct…

      You’re so right – imagine a world without stories and storytellers – bleak. 😀

    jo my lovely i am not sure what is going on but i have a devil of a time trying to reach your wordpress blog for the last few weeks i actually thought you had taken a break!
    today i managed to get on here through a roundabout trek of visiting your goodreads page which i then managed to get on to your google plus thingy and i found a link to an old post you had put on there and clicked that, luckily it took me here admittedly to the old post but finally here ^_^
    for some reason if i click on your name like i used to come here it simply gives your gravatar thingy and anything i click on there won’t work, don’t know if it s me and something i am doing wrong or if wordpress doesn’t like you, anyways i finally made it and wanted to let you know in case i am not the only one having trouble, i shall now finally go have a little read of what you been up to love and hugs to you my dear friend xx
