Okay, so, why The Snow Man matter to me, in 500 words or less. Or, at least, one hopes.

I think that you should not talk about things you don't know anything about. For instance, having never been homeless, talked to more than five homeless people, or done any research on the subject, I can't really talk about how they're just lazy. I do believe in "write what you know," but I think they make it too limiting. Women can write male characters, and men can write female characters. They can even do it well! But they should work at it, and think about it.

Anyway, what really got me on not assuming was two things in my life, which I will now put forward to you, in chronological order. this is a good time, I think )

My first word was Do. Pronounced "dough." It was how I referred to my father for the first three years of my life. Then my grandpa's "Dee." My mom was always disappointed it took me forever to say her name.

I also would only write the first few letters of a word while I was learning to write. I guess I was a lazy child.
