‘Write what you know’ - the ‘great’ advice given to writers to guide them to a ‘great’ story. Because great advice leads to a great story. That’s all you need, sort of… Here’s the thing; if I wrote about what I know, I’d never write a damn word. I remember a period in my life when I thought I was so frigging smart. The war started when I was 12, there were things I handled really well, even looking back, I must admit I’m quite impressed, especially when I look at 12-year-olds and how insanely stupid they can be. So perhaps I had a reason to feel very smart. But, between then and now something happened. I came to realize how little I know. There is so much knowledge out there, my brain cannot take even a small fraction of it. And then there are things I thought I knew, yet I really didn’t. So what I want to write about is ‘lack of knowledge and ‘being uncertain in my own advice’.
