    Quick query?

    Discussion in 'Suggestions and Feedback' started by sam80, Apr 9, 2012.

    I am not even too sure that this query is posted in the right place, but here it is anyway.....

    I have piece i would like to post for critique (when I have met the right criteria). The issue is, I am not sure where to post it. It was written as a short story, so I planned to post it in the short stories thread, obvious right? But I have since discovered the non fiction thread, and the event of the short story I have written is true, so should I post it there?

    Events may be true but the story is fiction if you have any fictional elements, say, if you have fictional characters. The movie Titanic is a good example. If you have no such fictional elements you should post it on non-fiction.

    Thanks killbill, you have made my mind up, non fiction it is. It is a recollection/reflection of a personal experience despite being written in a short story 3 pers narrative.

    Where as my other (hopefully bigger) piece i am working on (ish), is fictional, inspired by a true story, with a real war as the back drop to it. Thanks for the distinction. Pretty obvious now, d'oh!
