Write what you know. Snoopy does.
It's what we're supposed to do, right? And that's fine. But sometimes I think we could be doing one better.
Write what you want to know.
Something you're passionate about. Something new. Something you have to learn about. I've always been fascinated by Venice, but I've never yet set a story there because it's not what I know. But maybe I should. Maybe that's exactly the kind of story that will haunt my sleep.
So I guess that's my thought for this weekend. Write what you love, not necessarily what you know. What do you think?
