It’s not so much the experience that makes good writing; it’s the writer’s take on the experience. It’s the detail, the voice, the attending thoughts that shoot off on tangents and come ‘round again. It’s all the life you’ve lived, what you’re feeling lately, all of your quirks and issues and questions and what you know -- pretty much who you are that informs you as you release the words to the page. This is why 63 people can write about a snowstorm, or falling in love, or cheese, and every story will be different. Some will compel, others will be plain old dull, and yet others will be purely delightful. That’s the beauty of it. Consider the way you see it, and go from there.
