The Art of the Narrative

REMEMBER: “All narrative writing must pull from the raw material of life a tale that will shape experience, transform event, deliver a bit of wisdom. In a story or a novel the ‘I’ who tells this tale can be, and often is, an unreliable narrator but in nonfiction the reader must always be persuaded that the narrator is speaking truth.”
~Vivian Gornick, The Situation and The Story
