"Write about what you know and care about deeply. When one puts one's self on paper, that is what is called good writing." ~Joel Chandler Harris, author

Is what Harris said true for you--putting yourself on paper equals good writing? Think about it. If you, the author, don't care about what you're writing, why should anyone else?
