Todays writing advice

17 Mar

Write what you know.

I know it’s an old cherry but it’s true.
The more familiar you are with a subject or set of personalities/characters, the easier it is to create realistic sounding situations for them.
Because you understand the basic dynamic, it makes building something from it that much easier.
It doesn’t feel like work, you know it. Without thinking.
You can mentally ask “What would that type of person do/say in those circumstances? How would they react?”
The work feels more real, it flows more naturally.

You’ll find yourself writing more than you normally do because of your familiarity with the background.

Write easy, write what you know.
Use your personal experiences.
