Hey y'all,

You've heard "write what you know" before, but I need a little help with finding out what I know so I can write about it. I'm not saying I don't know anything because I know I do, I just can't seem to pinpoint very many things. I need some ideas for some 'how-to' type articles, and they need to be at least 1,000 words long. So far, the ideas I've come up with would be good for "short filler", but as 1,000-2,000 word articles, there'd be way too much fluff.

So I was hoping you all could ask me questions and offer some suggestions with regards to what I know. *Note: no need to mention greeting card writing, I've made a note of that one already. I also realize that articles don't always have to be about what you know, but since I'm new at this kind of writing, I thought what I know would be a good place to begin.

Oh, and I suppose it would help if I told you all a little bit more about myself. I'm a 33-year-old wife and mother from rural Mississippi. I have lived here my entire life. I like writing (duh), collecting the art and comics of Joe Linsner, listening to rock music, and watching movies (mostly sci-fi and comedies). I also enjoy cooking and baking. I have a few ideas along those lines, but most would be 'too short' to amount to a good, fleshed-out article so I'm saving those for filler.

Okay, so can anyone help me narrow my 'fields of expertise' down? I know I'm probably overlooking lots of options. Thanks.
