I’ve always searched the Internet for writing advice, and the one that many people refer to and the one that confuses me the most is to write about what you know.
Whenever I see this piece of advice, I tend to disagree with it. You cannot know everything about the topic you know about, and that’s what I think the whole point of research is. Also, you don’t need to know everything about the subject you are writing about, you need room for creativity! Not only that, but you can offer a change on the subject, if you knew everything about it, it restricts the possibility of idea creation, the one thing a writer needs most!
