So true. Many stories I’ve written have come from others. I’ll hear a snippet of an experience here and a snippet of an experience there — I weave them together into a yummy story.
So step outside of your “Write What You Know” and find new information on the stuff you don’t know.
Well written piece.
I also find that Author’s who know TOO much end up dumping unnecessary information throughout the book. I end up falling asleep or just skipping over those tedious paragraphs upon paragraphs of unnecessary details.
