The Writing Process: Fiction vs Non-Fiction - podcast

There's a different writing process writing fiction versus nonfiction. Bestselling author, Sara Paretsky discusses the difference. From her experience, writing fiction feels different than writing nonfiction. What's similar about them is that to write in either category you need to have a clear sense of what you want to accomplish and premise. When writing fiction, you have to understand why the reader wants or needs to experience the events and storyline within a book.

  • Thank you, Sara, before I started Author House, I use a journal to record what I go through life.  I set a side, 2 hours a day, to be able to contemplate my thoughts before I write.  My experiences with people and what I went through my life, has inspired me to write, tools I used, dictionary, Bible, self help books, taken courses on Psychology, Nursing to help me reach my inner self growth, the woman I am today.  The Book will be about me and the experiences I went through, the people I interacted with will have special names(not their real names).  This story is very special, it brings out real life events that others might have experienced or are experiencing.  Thank you, again.  Judy woods
