People often say, “write what you know.” For me, personal experience is often a rich place to start, but sometimes you don’t really know “what you know” about the worlds within and around you until you start writing. I strive to write with a sense of curiosity, an appetite for discovery, and an open mind.
Writing is a reckoning. It calls you to account for who you were, who you are, and who you can be—for what you knew, what you know, and most importantly, what you have the capacity to know.
