*Sure, this is a reiteration of my first blog entry, but I think it needs reiteration and a more official place here.*

Write what you know.

Well, who the hell decided that?

Here’s what the mantra is really saying:  Write what you are moderately familiar with and comfortable laying claim to.

After all, if you only write what you know, everything becomes an autobiography.  Or a textbook.

I have no delusions about my life.  I know that it’s not interesting enough to warrant an autobiography, textbook, or even a tri-fold pamphlet.  Nothing against other blogs.  Some people do lead compelling lives; I just don’t.  Does that mean I can’t write?  Unacceptable.

So, I’m taking it upon myself to change age-old monikers.  Here’s what the saying should be:

Write what you think.  Write what you feel.  Write what you want.

That’s exactly what I intend to do.
