I’ve been thinking a lot about this over the past 24 hours.
Write what you know.
I’ve never really written what I know. I generally like to pen something as far removed from my life as possible. But when I really think about it, I realise that it’s just setting and certain character traits that are different. My characters always hold the same morals and ideals that I do. So maybe, indirectly, I am writing what I know.
Do you take inspiration from real life? Or does your writing come from the darkest corners of your mind?
I have some situations going on in life at the moment that I think would be great inspiration. An excellent venting tool too!
