“Write what you know and if you don’t know–find out!” – Catherine Burr

    1. Yeah, I kinda learned that through writing, it’s just plain simpler to write what you know. Before I started writing, I didn’t really get that, but once you start to get into detailed descriptions, it’s much more authentic to have experienced places and even types of people that one writes about. I’ve often thought, of course the other answer would be to write something like sci-fi and you can just make everything up!

      I once went to a book-signing for a very well-known NY Times Bestselling romance author and was disappointed as a reader to hear her say that she looked stuff up on the Internet for research, while that may be true, it’s more romantic and fantasy-like to imagine an author actually experiencing those things they write about! That’s why, I say, if you don’t know about something, that’s ok, just get out that and learn about it!

      Thank you for visiting and commenting. I truly appreciate it!

  1. This lady right here, the owner of this blog, has taught me a lot when it comes to writing and publishing. I soar because of her…because she believed in me and saw my potential. I will be forever grateful and appreciative. Catherine Burr rocks!

      1. Yes, I understand dry spells. They come and go, it’s so common for writers to feel occasionally stunted in our writing. I don’t like to use the term “writer’s block” as when something isn’t working or we have stalled, there’s a reason, and when we figure it out, it’ll usually show up by virtue of a new story, book, or enhances our writing even further.
