Both words creative and unique are relative terms when it comes to perfection in the world of writing and publishing. But in today’s competitive market, the game seems to have completely changed. Unlike in the past when creativity was confined solely to fiction works, now it is highly recommended that all genres—across the literary spectrum—be written creatively. The game has changed. The rules of the game, that is!
Writer’s Digest, the quarterly magazine, which has been crowned as the queen of information about the literary world, just released a wealth of information about everything inspiring authors need to know. The magazine centers around the issue of being creative in the nonfiction world. Interviewing some authors on the subject, they all conceded that narrative nonfiction is like a creative story line foregrounded in fact. An author named Papin summarizes the new genre this way: Narrative nonfiction “encompasses memoir, science, history, historical true crime, reported memoir, travel narrative, investigative journalism, polemic, essay collection and a good deal more…..”
I would suggest that an author peruse scrupulously the lines that craft his story. Creative writing truly makes the story a joy to read!
