Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them — in order that the reader may see what they are made of.

- Kurt Vonnegut, "Eight Rules for Writing Fiction"

Let's simplify this a little:

I'm a writer, a knitter, a maker of things. I'm a Dominant and the head of my house. I'm a childfree housewife. I'm panromantic, homosexual, cis, femme, and part of the alt-sex community. I'm a recovering ACoN. I'm a gym rat. I prefer to top younger men, but I dislike the term "twink". I'm a Hypothetical Maltheist and a Democratic Socialist. And I put way too much knitting in my stories. Or too muck kink. Depends on who you're talking to.
