I have these ideas of realistic stories I want to write but realize I have no authority or any insight on writing them because I've never had the experience.
Relationships is a big aspect of stories that I'm interested in writing, but I've never been in a relationship in my life, so I have no idea how they would actually work. Any one that I would create would be an imitation of what I see in movies and TV shows, making it feel completely unoriginal and generic. I could ask myself what I would do in that situation, but when you're head over heels for someone, all logic goes out the door, so any logic I try to inject into the story would in turn not feel right.
There might be a life lesson to be learned from this. I probably need to go out and have more experiences.
Or I could just write what I know and only ever write about sad, single girls.
