I is for I Don't Know
They say write what you know. I read a twist on that last week in a blog titled: Steal Like an Artist. The author says write what you love. Both are right, I think. But the thing is, you could have grown up on a desert island and still have enough material inside you to write a book. Why? Because imagination is endless. The only thing stopping many of us from writing what we know, and what we love, and what we wish we could is fear. The I don't knows and the I'm not experienced enoughs keep us from letting our imaginations dance and paint and sing. If you want to write something write it. Look it up on Google. Write it then fix it later if need be. Don't let—I don't know—keep you from writing what you want to write. Not only are you denying yourself of happiness, but you're keeping stagnant and withholding your gift, your talent. Use it or lose it.
