Write what you know…emotionally
From the library of Beth’s writing resources, a quote from Lisa Cron’s book, WIRED FOR STORY:
“MYTH: Write what you know. REALITY: Write what you know emotionally.”
I love this quote because, well, it just makes sense. If I can feel it as the writer, then I can convey that feeling to the reader.
Are you bringing what you know emotionally into your story?
