Stories vs Reports

I've always said that my Around the Field writing was "storytelling". But is it?

Roy Peter Clark, PoynterOnline:

A wonderful scholar named Louise Rosenblatt argued that readers read for two main reasons: information and experience . Reports convey information. Stories create experience. Reports transfer knowledge. Stories transport the reader, crossing the boundaries of time, space, and imagination. The report points us there. The story puts us there.
