Your Blog Should Be Non-Fiction

Fiction refers to "made up" stories (stories that come from the author's imagination).

The opposite of fiction is non-fiction (writing that's based on true facts and the real world).

If you like to write fiction, that's great! However, you're in the wrong unit. This unit is about "personal writing" or "journal writing". And that means that the things you write should be true (non-fiction).

Of course, you can also post pieces of fiction on your website. Just keep it separate from your blog. Save your blog page for anecdotes about you and your interests. (An anecdote is a short story about a real incident or person).

Key Point:

Personal writing is a form of non-fiction.
