What You Write

Creative writing teachers should be purged until every last instructor who has uttered the words ‘Write what you know’ is confined to a labor camp…The blind guy with the funny little harp who composed The Iliad, how much combat do you think he saw? — P.J. O’Rourke

So, what you write may not be “what you know.” Go ahead and make it up. That’s why it’s called fiction.
