Here are some things I've come up with.
- I'm drawn to sad songs.
- I like to write characters with flaws.
- I'm around teenagers all the time.
- At one time or another I've known most the people in my stories.
- At one time or another I have been certain characters in my stories.
- Stories of unrequited love break my heart in a profound way.
- I write better when I'm in a deeply emotional state.
