IAN: Hi, this is Ian. Most of us have heard the cliché, Write what you know. But what does it really mean? I believe it goes beyond your own life experiences and the experiences of those around you. In a world where we have access to information about anything and everything at our fingertips thanks to the internet, our ability to know things has expanded exponentially.
If you want to write about a specific place during a specific time, you have the power to learn about it as in-depth as you wish. Now, you know about that location and era and can write about it with greater confidence.
Happy Writing, and I’ll talk to you next time!
