My mirror is strange...
I leave Tarkovsky's Mirror shot from the TV screen on this page (video). With English subtitles. Very postmodern, very much about me.
Where is the real mirror?
Well, I didn't write it.
I had no talent enough for books.
Perhaps, only "magic" mirrors are left (screens).
Not even paintings?
... the journal formóshort, choppy, blunt, businessman style. ... cutting from theme to theme with sharp transitions--non-transitions, really--between sections. Quick cuts. Scenes. Dialogue.... new icon for PM new amercian writing = webwriters [ sms ] "messengers" (Greek Tragedy).
“factual prose that is also literary – infused with the stylistic devices, tropes, and rhetorical flourishes of the best fiction and the most lyrical of narrative poetry. It is fact-based writing…[that has] foremost a fidelity to accuracy, to truthfulness.
“It’s very literariness distinguishes this writing from deadline reportage, daily journalism, academic criticism, and critical biography. It is storytelling of a very high order – through the revelation of character and the suspense of plot, the subtle braiding of themes, rhythms and resonance, memory and imaginative research, precise and original language…” – from Writing Creative Nonfiction by Carolyn Forche and Philip Gerard
But what is creative nonfiction?
As "nonfiction" implies, the information contained in creative nonfiction writing must be true; names, dates, places descriptions, quotation may not be created or altered.
The "creative" aspect of this genre means, "Writers are not constrained by traditional academic or journalistic straightjackets...locked into the inverted 5W (who-what-when-where-why) format." Rather, writers in the genre can write with style without sacrificing substance. They can write real stories rather than file traditional news reports; real stories that are perhaps more true because they include the flaws and warts of the humans they are writing about, utilizing literary techniques such as scene, dialog, description, personal point of view and voice. Thus, Gutkind says, "In this regard, creative nonfiction is as accurate as the most meticulous reportage-perhaps even more accurate because the creative nonfiction writer is expected to dig deeper into a subject, thereby presenting or unearthing a larger truth."
