I've heard the thing about "writing what you know". That's not what I usually write. I write about crime and murder. Sometimes the supernatural or religion+ end of the world type things. Things I think about. Why do people do this? What could possibly be going through their mind when they do it? Is the perfect crime possible? What if God or angels (or better yet-Satan) could actually step in and help out?
But thinking back to "write what you know" I start thinking about things I do know.
Creative parenting- Okay, so when my kids were little and used to fight-instead of yelling I used to make them hold hands and say nice things about each other. They thought it was weird but today they are best friends. -I think I could write this but not now.
Small town politics? Nooooo. Just....no.
Woman's self defense? Eh, I'll leave this to law enforcement.
Domestic anything? Hahahahahahhaha....not in this lifetime.
Ok, I do have one thing. I've been working in one type of business for the past nine years. I could write a book about that. However this business affects about 30,000 people in the USA-give or take a couple thou- but is that enough for a publisher?
Have you ever written a non-fic book? Any advice???
