Very late to this, but I learned long ago to write from a place of experience or knowledge. I believe in this strongly because if I write from a place that is beyond my knowledge or experience then it can come across as forced and or a lie. Writing is an adventure, and we have the opportunity to created this world that our readers, and watchers will dive into head first. If I chose to write about running from the mafia, but I haven’t researched it, lived through it personally, or gained access from insiders about the experience my writing has the chance of coming across incomplete and filled with plot holes big as the Grand Canyon. Anyways this is just my personal opinion, and knowledge I picked up along the way from other great writers.
