“It’s all in your mind!” Have you ever heard that phrase before? Well, for writers, it literally is all in our minds! All your ideas that you put to paper come from your every thought and your every experience.
One of the reasons being a writer is so entirely difficult is because we must constantly be very open, even if you’re not directly open in the way that you write, you are (hopefully!) still showing the emotion that is within you.
Remember that you can never entirely escape writing what you know in the sense that you are constantly coming up with ideas, but it can be easy to write what you know on a boring level. Be creative, write what moves you, keep working on that same piece of writing so that you know it will move others as well.
Keep on writing and come back next Saturday for another post!
