    Very good answers, Jaheim. I will comment and hope that you will see comments later for other students. That way our material will evolve.

    Your replies are good. For number 4, I am not sure what you mean by a narrative.

    As a matter of fact, novels and short stories are similar because they are works of fiction. Even though plays are made-up stories, only novels and short stories are fiction.

    Fiction is unique because it has a narrator: the person telling the story–not the author but the POV that the author uses to tell his or her story.

    1) An essay is an piece of writing that contains ideas and arguments to determine the piece of evidence. After finding evidence, there must be an analysis after it so that way the essay can have an brief explanation. An essay has bodies such as Introduction, Body one , Body two, Conclusion. There could be more but it really depends how much topic is being put into an essay. It also has Hook, thesis , counterclaim and etc.
    2) An novel is a type of story that contain human experience based on the narrative that created this story. Meaning of human experience is where the author or narrative has involved to real location that really exist and real events. The novel has plot, chapters, characters , theme, point of view and a setting. But the characters could be named differently but the actions were real.
    3) An Short story is quite similar to an novel but in short terms. But it does has more developed and more theme compare to the novel.
    4) Some writing genres that I’ve been assigned over the year in english class is poetry, historical, fantasy , and science fiction .

    Good answers, Douglas.

    Please note: how you defined an essay is correct for beginner writers. Professional writers are not limited and can have as many paragraphs as they wish.

    Most ENG 1101 professors will assign many essays to read. I only assign a couple because our other readings are short stories.

    A for your prefixes, they are good, but the kinds that go at the end are called suffixes, not relevant to the answer, like -ing -ed.

    Our concerns now are prefixes, like co-, un- trans- sub.

    1. What is an essay: An essay is a piece of writing created for a bunch of different reasons. Some essays are opinionated, while others are informative, persuasive and more. Essays contain some form of structure, for example introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusions.
    2. What is a novel: A novel is another piece of writing, however this is different from an essay. Novels include characters, a conflict and a form of resolution.
    3. What is a short story: A short story is a more compressed version of a novel, it is shorter, and tends to get right into the conflict and solution quicker.
    4. Name other writing genres you have been assigned over the years in english class: I’ve been assigned personal narratives, argumentative essays, poetry, and more that I can’t seem to remember at the moment.

    Very well expressed answers, Osman.

    So far no one has admitted to ever reading plays in English classes.

    EVERYONE, please note novels get underlined or italicized like The Great Gatsby or The Catcher in the Rye. Unfortunately, underlined is not an option here in OpenLab.

    Short stories, use quote marks, like “The Tell-tale Heart” or “Young Goodman Brown.”

    Thanks, Melisa,

    As for your literature categories, fiction is reserved for novels and short stories. It is not its own thing.

    As you can see from other students’ answers, there are quite a few more, and providing examples is helpful.

    Thanks, Matthew,

    I am not sure what you mean by “real” in novels. Maybe you mean “realistic”? There are unreal but believable situations in fiction, particularly in fantasy and sci-fi novels.

    I strongly suggest that you make use of the free app called Grammarly because it will help you see and correct various errors in your writing.
