Most writers, at least before they become rich, famous and immortal, seldom write about stuff they know. They're given assignments by their bosses, beats by their editors, topics by their clients or piece together bits of unfamiliar ideas and weave them together.
In this episode, our gang talks about some of the struggles we face when writing about the unknown. While research and experience can often solve the issue of not knowing enough, not LIKING the subject matter is another issue entirely.
Our advice? Suck it up, do the work and cash the check. Then go write what you know and like.
StorytellersAZ is a meetup for anyone who wants to tell better stories. We meet the second and fourth Wednesday of every month from 7-9pm at Gangplank in Chandler.
