Literary Elements fiction vs. nonfiction

Writers make their text interesting by carefully choosing details they add. Details help readers imagine settings and actions, helping them visualize and understand what they read. Details may take the form of vivid adjectives or verbs or very precise step-by step instructions. Attention to detail makes the difference between an okay piece of writing and excellent, lively writing.
