The cliché that writing teachers often fall back on is, “Write what you know.” I’d agree with that, except I’d add that often you’re writing situations you have directly lived through (like flying a starship) but it has to be emotionally true — so write what you feel.

Sometimes however the inspiration for a piece of writing comes from personal experience – such as the four TV pilots I’ve written about my family and the screenplay MY DAD’S GIRL, which now has Chris Wyatt, producer of NAPOLEON DYNAMITE, attached along with director Alethea Root, who was an art designer on Joss Whedon’s wonderful DR. HORRIBLE’S SING-ALONG BLOG.

It terms of MY DAD’S GIRL, I won’t go into the details of what inspired it, save to say it stems from incidents I lived through as a teenager. Read it and see if you can guess where reality leaves off and imagination begins…
