LanguageA writer who breaks the rules of grammar or uses a word the wrong way in order to create an effect. Language changes with time as people decide the rules are too constrictive and need to change. It is often creative works such as music, literature and films that lead the way.differ from concrete reality. For example, a painter who captures how a beach feels at a point in time as opposed to how it physically would look to a camera.
OmissionLeaving things out such as a biographical film that leaves out events and characteristics of an individual. This may be done to make the film more entertaining or to focus on some particular aspect of things. In this case, omission is also necessary because a life is rather longer than a film.
FactsChanging facts to make a story more interesting such as a film based on historical events that makes it appear that several significant developments occurred in the same day when in fact they spanned several years. Stories aren't dry recounts of events and often differ from reality. suspension of disbelief can only go so far as audiences also prefer stories that are somewhat grounded in reality.
NotesThe term artistic license is commonly used sarcastically to refer to unintentional mistakes in a creative work such as elements of a story that are inconsistent.
