So I’m writing a book that draws from my own experiences, and as that’s the case, is it okay to use myself as a baseline for the protagonist, as long as I develop her into something uniquely her own? I don’t like the idea of a character being so similar to me, but I’m hoping she’ll be her own person eventually.

I heavily advise developing her into her own character before you start writing. Because no matter how reasonable you think she is, if someone doesn’t like her, it becomes a personal affront.

Hey, so I’m trying to write a story in which basically, the main character is an author with writer’s block. She just can’t get this one character right. So then one day, that character-who happens to be a demon- visits the author, and they’re real and everything. They make a deal, become friends… and then demon problems. There’s a couple problems with this: first, the demon is HEAVILY inspired by a character I’m obsessed with (Bill Cipher, Gravity Falls) and semi-ironically, idk how to (1/2)
