Writing What You Don’t Know

Join Lynda Aicher, Keynote Speaker for a special look at writing BDSM stories and secrets to making them great.


“Write what you know.” How many times have you heard that piece of advice? That tip can be helpful, but more often than not, our story ideas take us outside the safe little boxes of what we know and plunge us deep into what we don’t know. I don’t practice BDSM and I’ll never be a gay male, but that doesn’t stop me from writing about both topics. Together, we’ll walk through the process of acquiring knowledge and hushing our own internal doubts to craft believable stories around subject we don’t intimately know.
