Thanks to the A to Z Blog Challenge, I found the TMI Tuesday Blog! One of the things I struggle with is what to put on my blog. Besides the obvious short (and not-so-short) fiction that I post, I don’t know what else to say. This is the perfect solution!
1. What makes you, you?
This is a fascinating question. A big part of me is my writing. I am passionate about it. If there is one thing I am going to invest my time in (outside of work and family/friends), it’s writing. It is an amazing outlet for me, both sexually (as I write erotic fiction) and in terms of a creative outlet. I am so grateful for my supportive writing group, too!
2. Do you care more about doing the right thing or doing things right?
Doing the right thing! I also want to do things right, but I am a very big believer in doing the right thing.
3. What is sexual freedom? Do you have it?
What a great question. As an erotic fiction writer, this is something that I feel strongly about. It is important to me that people have the ability to express themselves sexually in whatever way they like, with the only caveat being that it’s between consenting adults.
Do I have it? Mostly. At home I certainly do. My husband and I have a beautiful poly marriage. Our partners are respectful and wonderful, and we are very lucky to be able to explore.
However, I have to hide behind a pen name because of my profession. Not that I feel a need to share details of my sex life with coworkers, but it would be nice to be able to tell them that my husband and I are polyamorous.
4. In your romantic relationships, is trust more important than love?
Trust is definitely important, but love is what it’s all about. I will grant that there have been relationships which have failed because of a lack of trust, not a lack of love. But there have also been relationships that have failed because of a lack of love, not a lack of trust.
5. Your life, is it more of a dream or a nightmare?
My life is a dream. Definitely. It’s not 100% perfect, but it is wonderful in so many ways. I am blessed.
Bonus: What is the last romantic thing you did for someone?
It was quite a while ago, but my favorite one was for my husband’s and my 5 year wedding anniversary, I filled 50 balloons with little notes of all the reasons I love him. Then I filled a room with them. We spent quite a while popping each balloon so he could read the notes.
Thanks for reading my first TMI Tuesday! Comment with your links so I can read yours, or comment to say hi! 🙂
