Real writing comes from life experiences. The good, the bad, the ugly, all of it has fodder for writing. And the more personal, the more moving an experience has been, the better the chance at grabbing your reader by the word, and having them by your side until you’ve finished telling all that you have to, until you are done showing everything there is.
Keeping crucial details behind and not leveraging them to nourish your writing will only leave you with a draft you yourself aren’t satisfied with. Something will always feel amiss. Because let’s face it, not each and every one of us might be blessed with such imaginative powers that would take the world by storm. So what are we left with if not our own emotions?
