STAR LETTER

Write on

I sub copy for a leading aircraft magazine, but I’m scared of flying. I’ve won prizes for travel writing, but I don’t have a passport. I’ve written for Truck & Driver magazine, even though I don’t have an HGV licence.

But then again, how many fantasy writers have actually met a dragon? How many crime writers have killed someone for real? (One would hope none, but you never know.)

‘Write what you know’ is sound advice, but it will only take you so far. Take a punt on something you read in Flashes in WM; check out the possibilities of the ‘UK Magazine Market’ features; enter a competition on a topic outside your usual area. What’s the worst that could happen? You say you’re a writer, so write.
