As my passion for writing has developed, I have discovered the style that brings my writing to life and that special something that enthrals me. A connection with Non-Fiction Immersion Writing is where I have selected to lay my written thoughts and focus significantly on experiencing what I write about.
Why? My lack of imagination limits my ability in writing fiction, so alternatively real honest facts are what drives me… so non-fiction it is. Some authors are very creative in their ability to engage through their story-telling, but not me. I am a stickler for only speaking from experiences within my life and what captivates me.
Immersion Writing is a style of journalism where the writer immerses themselves into a situation and with the people involved. The result focuses on the experience rather than the writer. The personal connection with the topic gives a real sense of engagement and honest exposure when writing an article.
This style of writing allows the author to throw themself into the centre of the story and describe the unique experience honestly. Essentially you become the main character with the ability to immerse the readers in to your story. Types of non-fiction immersion writing includes memoirs of your life, journalism and unusual travel diaries. The focus is on the experience rather than the writer.
By writing in this interesting style, you can describe a situation that you have personally experienced, that the reader may not have experienced themselves, but can understand by simply reading your words. It provides a wonderful sense of immersion by not only the writer, but also by the reader.
Honesty and truth is the key to writing non-fiction immersion writing. It can be a challenge to step outside your comfort zone, remove any barriers, expose yourself and confront the subject head-on. You can’t be shy if you want to connect with your readers.
Immersion writing can reveal blunt truths, even about yourself, and can be difficult to write about sometimes. But readers love to see how others deal with complex or difficult situations and appreciate the engagement of sharing.
For me, non-fiction immersion writing is my choice of style because I love honesty, engaging with community members and inspiring others. I can write about personal experiences, struggles, everyday hassles, aspirations and still be able to help someone else through my words and ability to connect with my readers.
Often people would ask me… why do you write a blog? The answer is simple. I love to provide inspiration, encourage others, show compassion and empathy, bring value to other people’s lives… as well as promote the future of the agricultural industry through my writing.
All my passion is wrapped up in what I do every day… whether it be writing, administration, organisation and structure, charitable activities, creativeness or farming. My blog is a means to express feeling, emotion and coherence to other people’s lives, as well as bring value to mine.
Honesty and integrity is my driving force… so there is no better style of writing that I could choose than non-fiction immersion writing. It is a perfect match for me. And now my new business with freelance writing, brings my passion to a career.
The challenge as a writer… is to find that special style that suits you and brings the best attributes into your writing. The secret is to be genuinely passionate about what you choose to write and engage with your readers through your sincere words. Happiness is when you sincerely love your job.
