5. Write What You Know

Even though it's fun to be imaginative and creative with your writing, it can also be pretty difficult to always be inventing characters and settings which you don't have an insight on. It's common that writing this way can cause the content to feel somewhat unfamiliar.

Instead, try writing about what you know!

Write about yourself, the people you know (although you might want to change their names if you ever come to publishing it!), your home town, the places you've been, the things you've seen and anything else to do with your life!

This is the best way to truly connect to your writing and it will feel totally familiar. Once you've got this covered you can start to bring imaginary elements into your writing so that you have a good balance between reality and fantasy.
