Which do you find easier to write: fiction or nonfiction?
Do you write both or just one in your hubs?
Non-fiction is easier in my opinion because one doesn't have to "create a world".
All my hubs are on non-fiction topics but some contain an allegory or metaphorical story to emphasize a point.
I write non-fiction for a living, so I'd say non-fiction. I have written hundreds of short stories, some of which are on hubpages.
I say fictional stories are much easier for me than books because I find that stretching an idea out can lead to throwing in trope plot elements. There are too many people who take a good short story and ruin it turning it into a novel.
Can you tell me why short stories are more difficult for you to write than nonfiction?
Short stories are much easier for me than books, because I prefer the stories to the point. I have written several books like "Norn Born" and "Sirat". Nonfiction is easier than fiction because I get requests for pay on WHAT write.
With fiction, you get to use your imagination. With nonfiction, you need to research a bunch of facts and get the facts right. And then you have to organize it and keep it interesting.
I think fiction is more fun, but it can be challenging too.
