Write What You Know!



I came across this video of Ricky Gervais talking about his writing process. He says to write what you know. I have been writing about dating and relationships for the past six years. It is what I know and love to write about. My memoir, Hearts on the Line just won a Reader’s Favorite gold award. I stay true and close to my subject and come from it in an honest way, making the everyday extraordinary. Maybe one day I will write a novel and go off onto a totally different direction, but I love Ricky’s advice, write what you know.
