Fiction Research and Why It's Important 4/11/10

Postby Writetrack » Sun Apr 11, 2010 7:38 pm

This week, Glenn answers a member's question about "writing what you know." Here's the question:

Q: I've got a great idea for a novel and I'm running with it. When I was little my family used to live near a coal mining operation and that's the setting for my book. Since I lived around it I figured I should know enough about it to do it justice. Am I missing something?

Glenn gives some practical advice about how to take your life experiences and turn them into a great piece of fiction. And whether writing what you know is truly necessary for a good story.
