Write what you know…emotionally

Wired for Story by Lisa CronFrom 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?
