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 (long) short story for NaNoWriMo. I'm having all kinds of fun creating new characters and sending them on exciting adventures.
So...What are YOU writing? How many words are YOU at?
