Non-Fiction:A Latin word meaning, literally, "Not stuff that never happened." Here the writer is freed from the tedious chore of creating characters and reasons to care about them, and can simply write down things that have already happened. This is very easy to do.
At first glance it would appear that the possibilities for writing non-fiction are endless, as there is a limitless expanse of human experience and history to write about. This is true only in the strictest technical sense; in practice, the only non-fiction books that are published anymore are criticisms of The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
The Actual Writing Bit.
For the front cover, you'll need to come up with an eye catching title. By now, most of the obvious pun-based names have been taken. For example The Truth behind The Da Vinci Code and Da Vinci Code Decoded are already spoken for. You're going to need something that quickly shows readers two things: That you're talking about another, more successful book, and that you have strong opinions about this other book. Something like:
- The Da Vinci Code? More like The Da Vinci Crap!
- The Da Vinci Code was Fiction, Morons
- Dan Brown: Lying Asshat Mega-Writer
- Da Vinci Codebreaker: A Journey on the Seas of History in a Boat Made Out of Slanderous Lies About Dan Brown
