About Me

My photo

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Genres/ Narrative Styles

Literature is usually classified as having 2 major TECHNIQUES: poetry and prose: literature, newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, broadcasting, film, history, philosophy, law and many other forms of communication and 2 MAJOR FORMS: Fiction & Non-Fiction

Within these are different types of narrative:

Short story is a brief work of literature, usually written in narrative prose


Novel is a longer prose narrative which presents fictional characters and events within a sequential story.


Novella is a written, fictional, prose narrative normally longer than a short story but shorter than a novel.


Micro & Flash Fiction is a style of fictional literature or fiction of extreme brevity.


Drama is a specific mode of fiction represented in performance/ screen play


Poetry is a form of literary art that uses verse form, rhyme,  symbolism and metre to evoke atmosphere and intention

And within these are a whole host of GENRES and SUB-GENRES
