 One of the first rules awould-bewriter learns 

is to ‘write about what you know’.


If, however, this rule is taken too literally, few

writers would ever gain the requisite knowledge

to write an historical romance, murder mystery

or science fiction novel.

Far more practical is the advice from

bestselling author

Martina Cole to ‘Write about what you

know and if you don’t know – find out’.



You don’t need to have lived in a previous 

century, be a murderer or travel in space to 

write genre fiction. Thorough

research into the background against which 

your story is set

should provide you with the factual information 

you require

Expert knowledge is invaluable, of course. Years 

spent in industry or in the legal, nursing or 

teaching profession;


seeing active service in the armed forces; 

bringing up a familyon a lowfixed income; 

working long shifts on a factory

assembly line; running and perhaps losing your 

own business
– any one of these and similar experiences 

offers a wealth of

information on which you can draw, but factual 

accuracy is

only one aspect of writing. You also have to find 

a way to

breathe life into the characters featured in 

your articles and


stories and this comes fromyour experience of 

personal relationships,

both good and bad.

Fromour earliestmemories of childhood through 

our schooldays

to adult friendships, romantic attachments, 

experiences

at work and in our domestic lives, everything 

that went into

forming our character has a part to play in our 

writing.
