    Do all aspects have to be true? The overall aspects have to be true but the small details can vary and be somewhat made up by the author.
    How do the authors end this genre - a ending that sums up the plot, provides a conclusion to the main topic and sometimes brings you to the present time.
    Important Techniques:
    Aphorism - Saying what you think, when the author shares or states their opinion. (POV) It is important because the reader can get a good sense of what the author is thinking.
    Plot Structure - Deterimes what type of non fiction you are reading.
    Factual History Novels, opinion novels, articals, Personal Story Novels, and more. The nonfiction genre can vary widely.

    History- Anthing that is factual is conisdered nonfiction. It can be presented in almost anyay, like cavemen painting things on walls. They were telling people of what events took place or what they saw.
    What master techniques are becoming more important? In Jon's book imagery is used by the author to tell what is going on around him. My book is basically one big characterization. Each chapter is dedicated to a different person, and how they would characterize him. As i read i think i am realizing that the point of this book is not to listen and believe everything they say, instead i am supposed to take up each of their opinions and meld them together to create a true and accurate one. Plot structure is another technique used. Alot of nonfictions can be set up just like novels, because they are actually a story. Point of view is important; depending on who is telling the story it can have an entirely different affect. People are more likely to believe an autobiography, even though that person may change things for their own benefit. Conflict is almost always important. Everything in nonfiction involves a conflict, otherwise there would be no point in anyone wrting about it.
    How do authors end this genre?
    The authors end these genres with the a serious question and answer. and they keep us wondering with questions other unasked questions that the reader is forced to ponder upon, and then question what exactly this book is to teach us.
    How can any nonfiction story be different from another?
    Based on all the stories, they can be written in any way, such as short stories, a collection of novels, and autobiography, a biography, the point of view: whether its first person or third person
    What are the most the most important MTs to your genre?
    Important master techniques in nonfiction stories are point of view because depending on what is said the point of view of the story may change, imagery is important because without it cant paint a picture in your head and illustrate what is happening, and characterization is important for describing the characters by using aspects throughout the story.
    What are key diffrneces within your genres?
    Some nonfiction stories are written with short stories and primary resources, and also can be written in first person to show it from their point of view.

    The Length of a short story is always asked by many people. However they say short stories will never be any less then 1,000 words, no more than 12,000 words but mostly found from 3,000 - 5,000 words. An example is magazines or newspapers.
    http://short-story-writing.blogspot.com/2009/09/length-of-short-story.html
    The most important master techniques in short stories were plot structure, characterization, conflict, and the point of view because they are the vital parts of making a story. Also, there has to be an interesting title or people won't want to read it.
    In drama, the most important techniques are definitely dialogue, as that's what the play is comprised of, and movement, which is the only way for the audience to know where the setting is and how the characters are feeling.

    For drama, something interesting is that the ending of a play is the most difficult part to write. There has been a conflict of interests between the characters, however many there are, and the ending has to resolve that so the audience can enjot the play. It's even more difficult if the play has multiple conflicts.
