Incorporating Opinions into Non-Fiction Writing

Non-fiction writers are generally, fully aware of the topic of which they engage to write. Flawed methods of literary expression can certainly stifle a writer’s confidence, and lose readers’ intrigue.

The genre of a publication does not limit the contents. When incorporating your personal opinion into a non-fiction publication whether an essay, novel, or journal reports, the writer must not convey his opinion as a fact. Presentation of an opinion may seem, to the non-fiction writer, to be a blunder to include in a strictly factual, non-fiction publication; yet the reader does possess an omniscience to a person having to have had written the content.

The maximum breach to a reader can be when the writer labels a fiction publication a non-fiction publication. Leisurely, many book aficionados read only fiction or non-fiction and certainly do not enjoy buying a book or publication labeled non-fiction when are later discovered to be fiction. So, during the non-fiction writing phase, the writer must become aware of a mistakenly published genre and state concise opinions that are not to be misconstrued as facts. Of course, non-fiction writers enjoy to write novels about topic they are compelled to and feel they have some expertise, so many times, a novelists’ opinion can be a proven fact.

In the event of becoming redundant such as repeating many times, “my opinion is.., or I believe that…”, the writer must direct the subject his opinion toward the avocational standpoint of the reader; acknowledging and overstanding an opposition’s rebuttal. An expert tactic in non-fiction writing begins when the author writes with prejudice to opposition. Of Course, when the reader reads the book, the author will not be present in order to defend his argument, so the non-fiction author must acknowledge and factually discredit the opposition concisely (and generally within two sentences [in order to return to the core content of the publication]).

The tactic of concisely acknowledging and discrediting opposition during the statement of an opinion in non-fiction writing can earn the patronage of a formerly opposed reader; a way to spread an gain literary influence which is the entire purpose of writing non-fiction.

Non-fiction publications in any form of media (book, magazine, etc.) can take endless hours of improv revisions. Mastering writing techniques can perfect a single stretch of writing.

In conclusion, instead of saying, “In my opinion, global warming is a hoax to embezzle money into research committees.”, The insighted writer will acknowledge the patrons of global warming theory, discredit their learnings and give them a consolation as such, “Global warming may indeed be a researchable claim, yet the billions of dollars in government money spent on the cause has not found a remedy to the alleged imminent catastrophe.” Concisely, the enlightened writer evaded redundancy and state an opinion that is not reproachable and even convincing to a global warming advocator. Also, the wording of the insighted opinion makes a great entry or prelude into the continuance of the non-fiction supporting fact presentation.

Incorporating opinions into non-fiction writings can demolish an author’s credibility if not done appropriately and the mastering of incorporating opinions into non-fiction writings can develop into a discovery of the benefits of  influential writing.
