    The art of writing is bringing your words to life on the page. And one of the best ways to do this is to write with all the senses. In other words, don't just write about what your characters see. Describe what they hear, smell, touch and even taste as well. This is a guaranteed way to make your writing more vivid and exciting.

    Non-fiction essay writing is one of the two main divisions in prose writing, the other form being fiction. Non-fiction essay writing is a story based on real facts and information . Non-fiction is a narrative, account, or other communicative work whose assertions and descriptions are believed by the author to be factual.

    When you say 'non-fiction', what exactly do you mean? Persuasive, informational texts, speeches, literary analysis? If you can be more specific, I'm happy to share examples.
