Did I write that?

Some of my fiction-writing friends have turned to articles here and there. It’s an interesting past-time. I have learned a few things in my pursuit of non-fiction.

One of them is that I love fiction. Writing truth doesn’t bring me the joy of making things up out of whole cloth.

Another is that there are a lot of opportunities that don’t have your name on them. We sign the rights away on most of these sites in exchange for a monetary reward. Many of these short articles end up online – do you ever wonder who makes those? Sometimes, I do.

  1. I know how you feel. When I took creative nonfiction as a class, and then did that nonfiction book proposal, it made me really see how much I prefer writing fiction. It’s just more fun.
