Everyone is a critic.
I went back to work today. I've been excited about it since, as you know, I have a hard time not valuing myself based on my productivity.
|The house that is costing me my sanity.|
Tomorrow will be easier. Really.
I started a new book, by the way. All of my books have been very slightly autobiographical, other than of course things like telekinesis and turning into blue superheroes. You write what you know unless you want to do research, right? So, in the new book I decided to go whole hog and make the main character an accountant. I find the job rather interesting, and hopefully I can convey that to a reader.
Many of my main characters start as me. Then I add lots of really cool stuff that isn't me and take away all the things that relate to me that I think are too obvious or that I don't like. Perhaps I should try a different tactic, but it will have wait. This one is a CPA.
What do you think? Should you write what you know?
