I read the following sentences from a fiction called "The Reader."
My mother moved my bed out onto the balcony. I saw sky, sun, clouds, and heard the voices of children playing in the courtyard.
We usually use "the" before sky and sun, is it possible to leave out "the" in the above context?
Incidentally, 'fiction' is only countable when the work in question is quite small! Borges, for example, wrote 'fictions'. If your source is a novel, say either 'novel' or 'piece/work... of fiction'.
