Topic: Transference of traits from writers
This is just a general discussion.
It accrued to me today that I've never written myself into a story of any kind.
But I give personal traits of myself to my characters all the time. Some of my personality, maybe a few traits in my appearance, sometimes my speech patterns but I try to keep that very limited otherwise my characters would all be identical.
I know it typical of artists to put a part of themselves into their work but how concise are you off it when you write?
Just a curious question that popped into my head today
