What is an Anecdote?
What is it used for?
However, anecdotes can be modified into fictional pieces, one that is retold but is "too good to be true". Although used in a humorous manner, anecdotes are used to reveal a truth more general than the brief tale itself, or to delineate a character trait in such a light that it strikes in a flash of insight to its very essence.
