struggling with the advice - write what you know

It is what we’re taught and what is preached. Yet I find myself wandering off. . . Veering off of the path. I tell myself, what I know is what other’s know. I know motherhood, work, fear, sickness, rape, abuse, love, anxiety, insecurity, selling, friends, marriage, betrayal, depression, education, compassion, disease, ambition. I’ve seen evil and I’ve seen hope. I love music, art, theatre, cities, solitude, and people watching. I hate lines, flying, escalators, violence, and liars. There’s some good fodder in there, right? But yet I feel more an expert on the stories in my imagination than I do on my experiences. I feel like I haven’t got my own experience quite right yet. Hmmmm
Where do I go from here?
