writerly limits

Posted by Mike on 07/29/2016

Granted, I wouldn't assume this would ever be a problem for you, but as a hypothetical, if you were ever to come up with an idea for a novel - a proverbial "important" novel - but it was an idea that you felt was beyond your ability to research adequately, or to otherwise do justice to, how would you proceed? Would you just try to fake it as best as you could, critics and conscience be damned, or maybe try to seed it to another author who possibly could give it the treatment it deserved?
