Prose Fiction <br />In Multigenre papers, writers can combine fact with imagination to invent scenes that illustrate truth or scenes that actually happen.<br />Fictionalize and make up what you want to happen. <br />“Try fiction in order to imagine truth, to create a sense of life being lived.”<br />To set characters in motion, Go beyond narrative summary to create dramatic scene. <br />Dramatic scene appeals to our sense of visual imagery instead of just telling you about what happens. <br />Create scenes and resist explaining, summing up and analyzing.<br />
