F is for Fiction

Hey! Follow me this month as I work through the alphabet of great writing tips, from creating ACTION to getting into the ZONE. Then, go here to see who else is taking part in the 2014 A to Z Blogging Challenge.

I’ve written all kinds of things, from haikus and songs to essays and short stories, but by far my favourite thing to write (and read) is FICTION.

Fiction is a story from the writer’s mind. It’s when you use your imagination to think of the characters, plot and setting of a story. Fiction is “not true” — the opposite of non-fiction, which is based on fact.

My favourite fiction stories are the ones where I get to explore new worlds. Like, in IT’S A BLAST, my character (me!) goes up in a space ship and explores three new planets. I even meet aliens!

There are two main kinds of fiction. Short stories. And novels.

I’m a long ways away from writing a novel, but I am working on a bunch of short stories, not just for class. I'm having all kinds of fun creating new characters and sending them on exciting adventures.

So...What are YOU writing?
