A long-shared piece of advice for writers is "write what you know."
In the latest episode of the Kobo Writing Life Podcast (Episode 81: Blogging is Murder with Gilian Baker), I reflect on some examples of the use of "write what you know" - Gilian's novel as a good example, as well as examples from Joanna Penn, Julie Czerneda, and my own experiences.
Of course, some believe that this is a great way to add a layer of authenticity to writing. Others believe that it can be extremely limiting.
As a writer, how much of this do you think applies to your own writing?
How do you feel about the concept itself?
