Words of Wisdom #1

Don’t invent sufferings which you have not experienced… A lie in a story is a hundred times more boring than in a conversation.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (Russian Author)
I am not in the habit to preach. People usually learn best from experience, and they rarely value sermons. But this quote by Chekov is a gem of an advice to any individual anywhere who dreams of becoming a writer.
Write of what you have experienced, and you can never go wrong. It’s a personal philosophy that has rarely failed me.
