My best stories come from characters. When a character sits down next to me and starts talking to me about her story, I go with it. When I struggle with a story, it's usually because I'm trying to force a story onto a character and not listening to what they want the story to be.
I'm not transgender, but my story Transplant is a romantic erotica story about an MTF and FTM. Does the fact that I'm not transgender mean I can't write about characters who are?
Have writers who write about other worlds traveled to other planets? Writers have always created worlds beyond the one they live in, and readers have traveled with them to these worlds.
For the writers, what inpires you to write what you do? Have you ever been asked, "Why do you write that?" What was your response?
For the readers, ask me any question you wish to know about writing, inspiration, whatever.
