How much of your actual life gets written?

The best parts. Because that’s what gives it color, richness. There’s one scene where my protagonist and his love interest meet at his apartment. She’s looking at photographs on a book shelf and she sees one of him as a child with his family. The thoughts she has are directly related to thoughts I had looking at a picture of my young niece many years ago with her family.

It’s the little moments in life that must be woven into your book to make it real.
