Utalizing Fictional Creative Non-Fiction:
- Would something like this work in a serialized setting?
- More importantly, would something like this work with a journalized execution?
- I'm worried that, as a serialized story, a fictional creative non-fictional telling may ruin the catharsis of the reader in relation to the primary story, since, as far as I've seen, creative non-fiction and fiction are easy to tell apart. However, my audience knows that the story is fictional, so this fear may be unfounded in anything save for my own paranoia.
- I've played around with the idea of the story behaving metaphysically, as the narrator or journal entries work to actually create the world that the reader is reading while they're reading it. I find that such an approach would hit a bit too close to home, and may cheapen the catharsis at the end, or lessons learned (as some points in meta stories can be a bit Anvilicious in nature). What are you thoughts on the idea? Could it be pulled of in an interesting way?

You need to Get Known to get one of those.
