If you are anything like me then you have received a great deal advice in your life—Some of it good, some of it bad, some unwanted and others much desired. One piece of writing advice that was the worst for me was “write what you know.”
NO! I do not want to write what I know.
Writing for me is about escape into another life, world, person. I read that way too. I want to experience so many lives—the hopes, the loves, the aches and the dreams.
What I know is my everyday life and while some people love to explore everyday reality, that is not my thing. I want to fall in love with the handsome duke, dance at the ball, and be a lady-in-waiting to a Tudor queen.
What is the worst advice you received? Do share so we can complain about it then stick out our tongue at it.
