I joined the forum because it has been my habit for many years to chronicle our little adventures for friends and family. So, of course I have written only non-fiction (see "The Rental Car", short stories/humor). But after a few weeks of reading what other have written, and marveling at their imagination, I feel like a little an imitation writer. So whats the place of non- fiction in creative writing forums? I'm not unhappy with non fiction- and its what I mostly read. I have a quite large store of life experience from which to draw and it will keep me in business for some time.
