If you cannot write about what you know, write from your heart.
Research is a necessary evil, for all writers but remember it is for your benefit-not the readers.
Make a plan/format for your article/story but make it fluid;for changes to the story.
Make friends with your hero but give him/her flaws. Finally:Keep learning-no one knows everything!

Your 'story' is unique to you-if you use your own 'voice'. Do not ask relatives and friends to read your draft but use professional Editors. You need to think -long and hard about advice from your professional editor. Believe me- it can be painful sometimes but you know they are experts in their field. Do not be argumentative- learn from your mistakes.

    • What makes you say editors are experts? This can be a debate that can last an eternity. We need to be honest to ourselves as Authors and admit that editors are miles away from being experts. They are just people not experts.

      • Hi, RBK. Obviously there are a lot of people out there, who claim to be a professional Editor but make inexcusable mistakes. I for one, found typos after publication, which annoyed me. You made a good and valid point! Should we consider the fact that most Editors are now Freelancers' who are under-paid by Publishing Houses and their volume- of work, leads to mistakes. I have learnt to re-check my work-after it has been 'Proof-read'- before signing it off for publication. As the saying goes, 'Life, is a learning curve.'
