The Storytelling Technique

I prefer fiction to non-fiction because it’s better written. From the time I was young, it was my favorite ficiton writers who inspired me to write non-fiction as if it were fiction. Not faking information or changing information or exagerrating information–the storytelling technique. It was all drawn on my enthusiasm from my favorite fiction writers–Carson McCullers and John Cheever and Hemingway and Irwin Shaw, a wonderful forgotten writer. And of course F. Scott Fitzgerald, my favorite writer of all-time.
