When you come from a place of emotional truth in your writing and add fiction to it in your story, you connect with your audience.  Grisanti spoke about how to take inventory of your history and identify your universal life moments through looking at your dilemmas, your failures and your successes.  After taking the time to mine your creative well, you will find your gold.
