stories contain messages

“Stories contain messages – messages that might convey a mood, perspective, or moral. Stories make us feel a certain way, give us another way to look at things, and inform, educate, and entertain us. More importantly, though, stories are about something. Whether spoken, broadcast, shown through photography or film, stories revolve around thematic narrative structures.”

“Themes are as old as story itself; in essence, they are what story is really about.”
