A lot of people don't know and they do it anyway. If you want to do it right though, find an object and shine a light on it. Reference is always key to drawing things that you don't know.
If you don't have a light like a lamp or a flashlight then handheld electronics with backlights (which everything since the game boy advance SP has had, as far as games go) work in a pinch.
*links to Loomis*
This guy Loomis is sort of the standard (as far as I hear) for learning how to draw professionally, he was an art teacher and he knew how to teach art. Fun stuff. Also art teachers today still use his methods, not that I know or anything and I'm totally not enrolled in a college being taught art things.
I haven't gone through all his books even though I should, but that link provides a download to most of his books in .pdf form, including one astoundingly shitty .pdf but we'll not talk about that one because that's the documenter's fault not Loomis's, plus it can't be Loomis's fault because he's been dead for about fifty years.
Reading books is definitely no replacement for practice and experimentation, because as much as you know about any technique, you can't just apply it to something, unless you're a fricking genius or a savant.
So draw more.
TLDR: Draw more.
