Creative Nonfiction Subscription Renewed

Creative Nonfiction Subscription Renewed

Earlier in the year, I told myself I wasn’t going to renew my Creative Nonfiction subscription. By now, I should know better than to say such foolish things about writing and reading and staying up to date on all things related to creative nonfiction.

This is my desire and passion, to write. I am especially drawn to creative nonfiction. What is creative nonfiction you ask? It’s a tough one to explain so I’ll point you over to Lee Gutkind and the Creative Nonfiction site for them to explain it better.

If you don’t want to click over and read the whole thing, here is the gist of it explained by the 1966 Journal:

In 1966…

John McPhee published “Oranges” in the New Yorker.
“Frank Sinatra Has a Cold” appeared in Esquire.
Random House released Capote’s In Cold Blood.

Writing changed forever.

1966 is a literary magazine that celebrates research-driven creative nonfiction — prose that turns information into story and facts into art.

The first three writings listed in that quote are fine examples of Creative Nonfiction. But, that last sentence there wraps it up nicely – prose that turns information into story and facts into art. Amen.

Sidenote: 1966 is also the year I was born. 🙂

I renewed my subscription to Creative Nonfiction this week and they promised to have this issue (pictured above) at my house before Christmas and they delivered! It came via priority mail in a FedEx envelope and everything! Very nice. I promise to never threaten to leave you again my precious Creative Nonfiction genre. I also promise to practice the craft.

This is what I will do this coming New Year, in 2014. I will write creative nonfiction. There are two essay contests I’d like to concentrate on and submit to the first half of the year. I also want to share some things here on the blog. In fact, this is what I am trying to focus my blog on now, creative nonfiction. I am scared to death though, y’all. I hope I don’t get analysis paralysis and get scared and write/share nothing! We shall see.

Anyway, thanks for reading and stay warm my little love bunnies,
