Well, I love writing, but besides that? Cake. Yes, cake is my kryptonite. BUT, besides cake? I love dry red wines (especially Spanish reds), high end tequila, and D&D. I’m currently in a campaign where I play a level 10 human barbarian. I know for some of you this is snoozeville, but let me explain how this dovetails with writing. See, with the start of every new campaign, or if, gods forbid, your character dies and can’t be revived, you need to create a character. It can be almost anything! They can have massive amounts of power, be elven royalty, or a goblin peasant. They can be any or no gender. They can have disabilities, or not. Did you all know that there’s an entire group of devoted D&D players who are actively working to make D&D accessible to anyone who wants to play, regardless of disability? There are full sets of dice with braille numbers on each side, and disability mechanics and content for players of all kinds to have representation in TTRPG. In fact, you can find out more about that and the wonderful organization (to which I have no affiliation) at https://www.dnddisability.com/
I mention all of this, why? Because each new character is an opportunity to creatively write who they are, what their backstory is, flesh them out as an individual character, and then through roleplay, bring them to life and continue to help the character grow! It’s fascinating, and wonderful, and collaborative, and so much darn fun!
