About Writing

A quote which speaks to the "write what you know" concept, not as a philosophy but as a necessity to the craft:

“To ask an author who hopes to be a serious writer if his work is autobiographical is like asking a spider where he buys his thread. The spider gets his thread right out of his own guts, and that is where the author gets his writing.” 
--Robertson Davies
