In one deep sense, novels are concealed autobiographies. I don't mean that you are telling facts about yourself, but you are trying to find out what you really think or who you are. ~~ Robert Penn WarrenHow much of you do you put into the novels you write? I suspect we put in more than we think we do.
Writing is personal. There's no doubt about it. Writing that touches the soul has to come from deep within the writer's heart and mind. Don't be afraid to look at what is inside of you and let it come out. It's all part of the process.
