The Writing Process: Fiction vs Non-Fiction - video

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.

  • I started writing my first book I emptied 2 pens the first day and found out the next day I started the story 3000 years to late now I have to go back and write from 6000 years ago.   Changes the neighboring tribes a bit and we were a much smaller tribe that was scattered over a greater territory than I had expected.  I have to change about thier houses and was a little shock about thier first dwellings.  And eventually the dwellings during the time of the Amazons.
