I’ve talked about using life experiences as a reference for writing before. This piece of advice is still relevant to myself. Yesterday, I had an engagement that took all my afternoon, evening, and part of my night. To tell the truth, I had only seen bridal showers in movies and on television. Let me tell you it was everything that I expected it to be. I won’t go into more details because, well, there’s no need really.
At least I can use this experience in my writing. I think I have a character in me who is getting married. If not then it’ll make a really interesting short story or flash fiction piece. Honestly, I think most if not all of what happens in life can be used in writing.
