New to Nonfiction

Postby GodGirl » Sat Mar 01, 2014 3:37 pm

Hi Everyone,

I'm a 17 year old aspiring writer, and am trying to find a genre or style of writing to really focus on. I've recently decided to try my hand at writing nonfiction. Does anyone have any tips/ideas on how to get started?

Just look at life around you, check what the Bible says about it and start writing!
Blessings!

Have you tried the weekly writing challenge? Most of my entries are nonfiction, and I find the deadlines very motivating. :D

Thanks for the great ideas. I have tried the Challenge a couple of times, but as a Silver member, I only have 4 credits. I'm hoping to upgrade soon, however, which should give me more opportunities:)

I was going to suggest the challenge as well. I have written some nonfiction. Most of my stuff though is fiction with a lot of my real life in it. You may want to consider writing a testimonial (especially if you upgrade, then you could enter the testimony contest.) Another good nonfiction is devotions. In fact, FW is doing a daily devo written by each member.
