Fresh Starts: Fiction and Non

1. The aging rock musician gets a liver transplant. His first thought upon recovery: “Now I can get high with a clean slate.”

2. I’m beginning the new year in an optimistic frame of mind. I’m as contented with my life as it’s healthy to be. I’m looking forward, not backward.

3a. Of paragraphs 1 and 2, one is fiction and one is nonfiction and I know which.

3b. I don’t know whether 3a is fiction or nonfiction.
