What should we write about? Author Hannah Kohler answers the question and discusses how her book The Outside Lands came into being.
People often say you should write about what you know. I believe you should write about what you love. When you’re writing a novel, you go to bed with it, you wake up with it, it’s with you when you’re in the queue at the supermarket and when you’re in the shower. So you have to fall in love with it. You have to fall for the subject matter.
