Top 10 Tips for Translating Research Into Fiction

Top 10 Tips for Translating Research Into Fiction | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Writers have long been blurring fiction and nonfiction, for example, in genres such as historical fiction and creative nonfiction. There is a new movement with scholars across the disciplines using fiction as a research practice in order to more fully express their cumulative knowledge and to make the research findings more publicly accessible and engaging. The result of this work is called fiction-based research (and is an outgrowth of the widely known arts-based research movement). The tools that fiction-based researchers are using may be of value to any author wishing to combine careful research in their literary writing.

Have you ever felt the sting of rejection by publishers, family or friends? If so, you are in good company. Reading through some of these rude rejections experienced by 30 famous writers should give you the fortitude you need to keep on writing and publishing.

 

Famous authors such as:

 

George Orwell.  One publisher rejected Mr. Orwell's submission, Animal Farm, with these words:

 

It is impossible to sell animal stories in the USA. 

 

And this one about one of my favorite authors: John Grisham. Mr. Grisham’s first novel, A Time to Kill, was rejected by a dozen publishers and 16 agents before breaking into print and launching Mr. Grisham's best-selling career. 

 

Write on!
