I agree with her. I may not be an authority in writing but I noticed that most of my posts revolve on how I live life and how other people live their lives. At times, I get ideas by seeing things through their own perspective. What I see is entirely different from what the other person sees. So, it is good that we also see through their eyes and feel through their hearts while we write.
My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living. – Anais Nin
