Why Should You Go For Fiction Rather Than Non Fiction?

I have always been writing whether it is fiction or non-fiction. When I write non-fiction it feels I am trying to give an exam in a history or geography class. It feels like writing things you have learned, experienced and have seen. Well that's a very good thing. Helping others in your life and that too with a book can be unusually fun and helpful. Writing things that you know and turn that piece in to self improvement book can be very beneficial for both you and the readers. As much as it is self-rewarding it can be giving.

But what if whatever you have learned in your life does not benefit others? What if whatever you have seen, felt, experienced does no good to others? Then it is not at all giving, not at all beneficial and fun for others. People would not be willing to read what you have got to say. People would never feel that you are writing the book to help them but to frustrate them.

And also I would like to ask you (no offence to the writer of non-fiction) , how do you feel when you are writing what you know, what you have seen, feel, experienced? It feels just you are experiencing same old journey again only this time it is monotonous. It also feels like you are not at all triggering the part of your brain you are supposed to exercise, you are not at all putting any effort to improve your skill, your idea, your knowledge.

Writing fiction is like writing the unknown...but writing the unknown can be beneficial as it would increase your creativity and would tell you to research. It is only in fiction writing we thing outside the box and also research to make things realistic when it is supposed to be. Lets say you are writing crime fiction, you can let your creativity flow and come up with excellent story but also at the same time you would research know more about how detectives and forensic department works. That's the best part about fiction writing, it gives you an excuse to do the best of both worlds!

My latest work has been progressing pretty much the way I want to. I have never felt such extreme burst of creativity before but thanks to my latest work about office drama which helped to explore and research many things that I was unaware of.

I have recently started another fiction book and soon it would be released.

Here is one of my book The Unlucky Intern, I would love to hear what you think about today's post and about my latest book.
