You know stuff, use it | Story Empire

One of the first things I learned as a writer is, “Write What You Know.” Okay, I can see the importance of that when writing non-fiction. For instance, I once thought I would write a book based on my experience of being a cancer survivor’s wife. I planned to write about our experiences throughout my husband’s treatment and recovery. But somehow, the book never got off the ground.

Why? Because my deepest desire was always to write fiction. And through my journey, I’ve found that real-life experiences often make the best stories.

Fellow author, C. S. Boyack talks about that over at Story Empire today. Why don’t you pay him a visit and see what he has to say?
