Writing Non-Fiction

Writing Non-Fiction by Lynn Tincher

Growing up, when I thought of non-fiction writing, I thought of text books. As I started writing and taking classes I found there are several other non-fiction avenues for any writer to write. More than I thought of for a category like this.

Writers can write articles on sports, interviews, criticisms, reviews, creative fiction and blogs. All of these are considered non-fiction.

Most writers feel that writing non-fiction is easier. The quote "Write what you know" comes to mind. It is easier to write about things that you are familiar with. Don't get stuck in this rut. Branch out. Write about things you would like to learn about. Write an article about a place you would love to visit or a restaurant you would love to try. Try writing a book review for the latest and greatest book you've just finished. Do your research and find new ideas or information and put the pen to paper; or fingers to keyboard and go for it. The research is only a part of the fun.

Here are a few links to help you develop your non-fiction writing:
