The Writer 2016 Week 4: Creative Non-Fiction

Image
I got through to the final Week of the competition! I could barely believe it and was totally over the moon about the support I received!

So in Week 3 I had wondered what on Earth could be left remaining after Speculative Fiction seemed to sweep up all the possible genres in one go (sci-fi, fantasy, horror... eek, nothing left!). It turns out I had a reason to be afraid. Week 4's theme turned out to be Creative Non-Fiction, a genre I have no experience in.

Speculative Fiction is a little bit of an insider term - it really just means anything that is not possible in the realm of reality. Horror, SciFi, Fantasy, wherever the writer's mind can go to morph reality. I liked that we were given a choice, although it made me worry about Week 4, should I make it through. What genre on Earth will there be left to write if they are all compounded into Week 3? But I had to worry about the present first.
