Non fiction captures my interest when the writer adds lots of anecdotal material. I guess at heart, I must be one of those learners who need lots of stories. I find myself skimming to find them if they're too far apart.
Hi Dottie - I love anecdotes as well. It takes something from the realm of theory to practical application.Blessings,Susan :)
It is interesting to see which elements can contribute to both fiction and non fiction. I agree with Dottie, anecdotes are a good thing when added in the right place.Happy weekend,Karen
Sometimes I like when non fiction reads like a novel. It really depends on my mood though. I read a lot of history books, and write history articles. Sometimes I really like the meat of the the story, more than the straight facts.
Hi Karen - Thanks for weighing in! Happy weekend to you as well.Hi Loree - Yes, straight facts can put me to sleep. Blessings,Susan :)
I love the idea of putting conversation into non-fiction. Conversations are one of my favorite things to read.
Hi Nancy -They certainly give some zip to the article or book. Blessings,Susan :)
