Fiction And Non-Fiction

From time to time, just like with writing prompts something will happen, I’ll see something or a thought will come to mind that motivates me to write a short piece about what I’m thinking. Sometimes its fiction, sometimes non-fiction.  Fiction And Non-Fiction Library seemed like the best place to put them.

I will be putting those types of stories in this section of the blog.  I hope you enjoy reading and please leave comments and share if you enjoyed the story and let me know what you think.

From Dictionary.com

Whoever decided that Non-Fiction would be true stories and Fiction would be stories that are not true?
