In the midst of the 2016 US presidential election, the word “alternative” conjures up a sense of the unknown.
And yet, there is something that is not quite “alternate” and that is the world we live in today.
In this post, I would like to explore the world of nonfiction nonfiction, which is where fiction is the medium for describing the world in which we live.
Nonfiction can be an essential tool for navigating the complexities of our contemporary world.
In 2017, there are more than 10,000 published fiction books.
In 2016, the average published nonfiction book sold more than 4 million copies.
The books we read, write, and listen to are the foundation of what makes us human.
I would argue that this is what makes nonfiction fiction so important.
In fact, nonfiction has become a core part of our culture and a crucial tool for learning about the world.
I am going to discuss five ways that nonfiction can make a difference, and then offer five reasons why we should be reading and listening to them.
I will then look at the role that non-fiction plays in shaping the way we live, in the way that we think, and in the ways we think about the future.1.
Non-fiction can offer us a glimpse of the future The first way to understand the future is to look to the past.
The past is an important and influential tool for understanding our current and future circumstances.
We are living in an era of profound uncertainty, in which a global pandemic is threatening the future of humanity.
This is a crisis that is likely to have a profound impact on our own lives.
The world we know is changing rapidly and unpredictably.
We have the power to shape our own future, but we do not have the ability to control the trajectory of change.
We also have the potential to shape the world around us.
As a society, we can no longer afford to ignore the changing world we are living.
Nonfictions are tools for changing the world, and as a society we have a responsibility to consider their impact on the way in which the world is being created and changed.
In some ways, we have become the new authors of our own futures.2.
Nonliterary nonfiction is often about our own history As we look back on the history of our society, the nonfiction of our past often provides us with a glimpse into what we may be experiencing today.
Nonauthors like John Steinbeck and the Nobel Prize-winning novelists William Faulkner and H.G. Wells were pioneers of the non-fictional narrative, and they did so by providing us with an alternative, sometimes fictional, view of our history.
This historical approach to the writing of fiction has had a profound influence on the writing practices of today’s nonfiction writers.
The writing of nonfictions has become increasingly about our past.
This shift in how we view our history can be attributed to the work of many nonfiction authors who, as noted above, have focused on the themes of social injustice, inequality, and political power that we are now experiencing.
These nonfiction works can help us to understand our own historical context, and, by extension, our future.3.
Non fiction can be a resource for understanding the future Nonfiction is also a great way to think about how we may respond to the changing nature of our world.
Nonauthority is a powerful, yet also misunderstood concept, as it is often misconstrued as an act of willful defiance against the establishment.
However, nonauthority can be defined in many different ways.
For example, it is not always synonymous with “being out of step with the mainstream.”
In fact it is possible to be out of the mainstream, but not necessarily “out of touch.”
In nonfiction literature, non-authority may also be defined as a specific form of non-consensual domination.
In other words, the act of nonauthory may be defined differently by different people and different authors.
In non-literary writing, the term “nonfiction” is often used to describe nonfiction that is neither novelistic nor literary.
The concept of nonliterary fiction is not new.
In a 2007 essay, J. K. Rowling described the novelist and essayist Stephen King as a “realist novelist,” and in a 2009 interview with author James Baldwin, he said that “the difference between fiction and nonfiction was a lot less than fiction is used to.
[King] really has never really gotten away from nonfiction.”
While nonfiction may not always be “fiction,” nonfiction does represent a rich and important part of what we think of as fiction.4.
Nonwriting can be useful in learning about a particular social issue If nonfiction writing is important to the creation of nonconsensual social change, it makes sense that nonauthorities and nonfiction can be used as learning tools to help us understand how to better
