We fiction writers are always searching for things to write about. Well, why not write about the things you’re passionate about.
Are you passionate about photography? Work photography into you stories. Or what about gardening?
Are you a foodie? Or how well do you know the local karaoke scene.
See, when you write about something that you’re passionate about you probably already know a lot about it. This helps to give credibility to your story; because we all know we should write about what we know.
And when you work in your knowledge of what you’re passionate about into your story, this makes it easier to make the rest of the story up.
