Writing Tip #59

No, I'm not going to tell you to read Writer's Digest. You should already do that if you're a writer.

This was a quote I saw in the most recent issue of WD. It's by Donald Maass, literary agent and author of Writing The Breakout Novel, talking about the timeless rule of "Write What You Know":

"'Write what you know' means to write what you see differently, feel profoundly and know is important for the rest of us to get. You don't need to have lived an extraordinary life or have a unique subject. You need only an original outlook and a fresh purpose for writing."
