Have you ever changed a little bit of your story to make it more appealing?

I for one have done so. I could go to a national park in a city over 2 thousand miles away and give details of it or I could walk a few blocks away from my home and describe what is going on in a local city park. It all depends. The idea behind any kind of story, or going into any elaborate details about a personal experience is to make it more appealing by glossing over things, making it seem more intense or set the mood for a good conversation. I know that some people have had far more intense experiences but have difficulty writing it down in a way that is easy to read and that makes reading it fun and sometimes even exciting to the reader. We used to have to stand up in class and tell the class about 'My Summer Vacation' and some spent a few weeks at a summer camp where they rode horses and went swimming and so on whereas others like myself only had the basic "We went to 6 Flags, I didn't like the Log Ride because I got wet at the end." and so on. I hated it when we had to get up and tell all the other students what I did on my summer vacation. I wanted to just tell them I spent it on planet Mars and that the cheese there was very very sandy tasting. No. We did not go to Europe, We did not go on a cruse. But I think some of the other student's made stuff up just to make them seem like they were the ones lucky enough to have the experiences. The older you get, the more elaborate your story telling becomes.
