From YKTTW Working Title: Write What You Know

Okay, I'm gonna mention this here and hope people pay attention, because I can imagine enough people will be confused by the article description that they'll start adding all sorts of inappropriate entries.

Lots of people write what they're interested in. That's not the same thing. If you're not interested in it, why would you want to write it? Instead, this is about people who actually LIVE the life of what they write about.

Do NOT add entries saying that this or that creator "loves X, and therefore all their books are about X." That does not count. Only if the creator "was an X for many years, and writes about X" would that count. See the difference?

I will start cutting inappropriate entries to prevent this trope from derailing.
