Fiction generally is a narrative form, in any medium, consisting of people, events, or places that are imaginary—in other words, not based strictly on history or fact. In its most narrow usage, fiction refers to written narratives in prose, though also novellas and short stories. More broadly, fiction has come to encompass stories with imaginary elements in any format, including not just writings but also, for example, films, television programs, comics, and video games.   Details


Nonfiction is any document or content that purports in good faith to represent truth and accuracy regarding information, events, or people. Nonfiction content may be presented either objectively or subjectively, and may sometimes take the form of a story. Nonfiction is one of the fundamental divisions of narrative writing— in contrast to fiction, which offers information, events, or characters expected to be partly or largely imaginary, or else leaves open if and how the work refers to reality.  Details


An autobiography is a self-written account of the life of oneself. The Monthly Review, when he suggested the word as a hybrid, but condemned it as “pedantic”.  Despite only being named early in the nineteenth century, first-person autobiographical writing originates in antiquity. Roy Pascal differentiates autobiography from the periodic self-reflective mode of journal or diary writing by noting that is a review of a life from a particular moment in time, while the diary, however reflective it may be, moves through a series of moments in time”.      Details


A cartoon is a type of illustration, sometimes animated, typically in a non-realistic or semi-realistic style. The modern usage usually refers to either: an image or series of images intended for satire, caricature, or humor; or a motion picture that relies on a sequence of illustrations for its animation.

Manga are comics or graphic novels originating from Japan  to refer to both comics and cartooning. Outside Japan, the word is typically used to refer to comics originally published in the country.     Details
