Turning Life Into Fiction [Carter Sickels]

Fiction gives you the freedom to make up stories, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look at your own life for inspiration. Tim O’Brien says, “Story-truth is truer sometimes than happening-truth.” You won’t just be writing “what you know,” but writing what you might discover—by blurring real-life experiences with whatever you dream up. Through writing prompts, you’ll mine memories and generate ideas from daily life, and, in the process, learn more about the craft of fiction.
