N is for Non-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.

Ugh. We have to write an essay in class. I know I always talk about writing, but aside from my Journal and this blog, I’m more of a fiction kind of kid. You know, the stories that transport readers to an imaginary world…?

Essays are a type of NON-FICTION.

Non-fiction writing focuses on the real world and real people — like biographies, autobiographies, memoirs and documentaries. And then there’s the really boring stuff, like manuals, text books and…essays.

Don’t get me wrong, I do read non-fiction — especially biographies on some of my favourite sports heroes. But writing it? That’s going to take some practice.

Which means I should get started now!
