Whether you're a writer or not, you've heard people say "write what you know." The idea is that you should stick to topics with which you have experience. I think that this advice is garbage.
I am new to the world of fanfiction. However, I just finished reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and now my interest is piqued. So, I decided to see what all the fuss was about.
Let's face it. The daily news stinks. If you're feeling depressed about the news and want ignore it for a little while also, and if you love books and writing, here are 5 of my favorite book-related stories from this week!

Yesterday, I realized I'm thisclose to sharing a birthday with Shakespeare. I missed it by 2 days, but it made me wonder who I do share this day with. Turns out, it's some pretty cool people who are also indirectly related to my 10 favorite things! It all comes together...
