Single Question Interview: Jamie White
How important (or not) is relating
your writing to your past or present residences?
First, thanks for having me here today, Kenneth. I love this feature you do, so it’s awesome to be a part of it.
I think it’s a big help to “write what you know”. I put little details of people I know and things I’ve experienced into my stories, and I think that brings a certain life to a story that research alone can’t quite give you. All the details of a place can be right on, but I believe writing about a place you have lived in adds an emotional resonance to a story that is hard to manufacture. Our hometowns are, for better or worse, filled with memories and helped to shape who we are as people. I can’t think of a better source of inspiration.
***You can pick up Jamie’s books through AMAZON.
