Dedicated to: You

I saw this picture... probably on Pinterest...and knew I had to incorporate it into a blog post. As an author, I often include (sometimes subconsciously) real life things—places, people, events—in my stories. 

I've seen a lot of funny memes about this very phenomena over the years... Warnings about not pissing off authors or you'll become a fictional character who gets "killed" in their next book. Etc, etc, etc.

There's a reason. You write what you know.

When I reread my work...especially after a longish break...I learn all kinds of things about myself and my feelings. Seriously. I'm not a big talker. I write to process and understand how I feel. I really do. That being said...not every part of my very fictional stories is based on my real life. Full disclosure.

I bet you're wondering now what's true and what's not.
