Write about what you know
Write about what matters
Write from the intangible tangle
of memory and imagination
You learn to write by reading and writing-writing and reading. It's a craft acquired through the apprentice system, but you choose your own teachers. Some are living, others have died. You receive your vocation and in turn you must pass it on. Some writers accomplish this through their work, others teach. Regardless of how you do this, you're part of a community of writers-a community of storytellers.
