Fun, quick article from Friday "https://lithub.com/ursula-k-le-guin-on-how-to-become-a-writer/"

<they'd say> "..write about things you know about."

And I would say, ... "I do; I know about...<my> imaginary countries."

David, thank you. I esp. enjoyed the comparison and contrast with music. It's so true. Music is communal even when a composer has brought out something from deep within himself. Writing is always about the individual experience.
