A fictional story, whether it's long or short, is supposed to be something that influences our own views in life. It's supposed to expose us to new perspectives, introduce us to new lifestyles, and bring us into experiences that we may never have, but still enjoy as a silent bystander. And it's supposed to do those things in such a way that upon reading a story, we feel as though we've mentally transported to another time and place, made new friends or enemies, and perhaps become a bit wiser from it all.
Paint a Story with First Draft
Because nonfiction writing is generally fact-based material, its writers are trained to eliminate probably 80% of the detail that fiction writing needs to be interesting. And without sufficient practice, a nonfiction writer will stumble with creating fictional content. That's why, now, First Draft's fiction generator "paints with words." In other words, it "story paints" by inserting a few, relevant details within the stories that it generates.
As always, authors are free to disregard them completely or change them to whatever is more appropriate. The idea is to spur non-detail oriented thinkers into writing a fictional story that's descriptive, emotional, and most importantly, engaging. And so far, it's working.
There's a fine balance, however, between providing direction and writing a completed story. That's a balance that First Draft is careful not to tip with too many or too few details. Even as more content is added (as it is every day), the amount of detail is enough to guide a story's development without overwhelming it with things that may or may not be applicable.
So if you're interested in writing fiction, but are intimidated by the amount of detail it can require, generate a fictional story with the new version of First Draft and see if you're aren't drawn into the presented narrative. With access to over a million story details, I don't know how anyone couldn't be.
BONUS! First Draft Generates More Content
One of the things that a million story details provide is access to even more unique content. (The details make it unique.) So with that at hand, First Draft now generates even more articles, stories, and reports that are completely different from each other. And you'll see that happen in the new version.
In the new version of First Draft, current users will notice a significant difference in the content that they've been getting from the software in the past. They'll see new words, new phrases, new sentences, and new paragraphs. In some cases, they'll even see completely new articles. And it's all thanks to those little details.
