What do you want to write about? Burning out yet another clutch, falling in love, raising a son? Whatever is it, it has been said before. Your challenge is to find a new way to say an old thing. For that, you need your wonderful voice and those cranky, eccentric details that could come only from a frontier where no one else has been: your life. You say what happened to you, using images and details that come directly from your experience, and magically your story is transformed into a story about the rest of us.
