SoCS & #JusJoJan the 14th – Once upon a time

Once upon a time … You’d think this would be easy for me, wouldn’t you?

I tell stories all the time.

And yet, every single time I write one, I ask myself, Is this autobiographical? Am I writing about me?

I don’t want to write about me when I write fiction, so I try to steer away from it.

But I think it’s a common thing for writers to wonder. How else can we write aside from relaying what we’ve observed about the world? And how much of those things, those experiences, has seeped in to make us who we are?

GAH!

I didn’t want to get philosophical with this.

Who came up with this prompt anyway?!?

Oh.

I did.
