Fiction writing can be inspired by fact or based entirely on the fantastic. All works of fiction, regardless of their content, share certain basic elements.
Originally fiction meant anything made up, created, or shaped. Today we have refined the definition to mean a prose story based on the imagination of the author. Fiction writers may imitate the forms of nonfiction or use true or historically accurate details in their stories. At the same time, they write not to re-create reality but to entertain and perhaps to comment on human existence. One of the most popular forms of fiction, the short story was first defined by Edgar Allan Poe. He was sure that "worldly Interests" prevented most readers from concentrating on reading. He felt that a short, concentrated tale that could be read in one sitting and that created a single, powerful Impression was the best type of fiction. Today, Innumerable writers have followed Poe's recommendations, creating stories on a vast array of subjects. For instance, this unit includes short stories ranging from a tale of three wishes to a story of an empty house after a nuclear war.
