WRITERS ARE POACHERS

I'm sure you've had the advice: 'write about what you know' and sometimes thought that can be quite limiting. But if you widen your horizons you'll realise that you 'know' a great deal more than you imagined. Writers like D.H. Lawrece poached without any guilt on the experiences and stories other people told him. The French writer Colette's characters were often based on people she knew. so cleverly did she do it that they never realised she was writing about THEM.So, keep a notebook and jot down snippets and stories people tell you. You don;t have to copy them slavishly but they will expand your range of 'what you know.'
