Writing is Hard, Guys

Making an original character for self-indulgent stories without inserting traits of myself is difficult sometimes. Especially when I try to write romantic stories. Oh, woe is me who makes all of her original characters hotter versions of herself.

I like to use OCs as personas, a little bit of yourself smh makes you want to make a better OC.

each of my OC's are the voice in my head. does that count as self-insert?

I have to keep something back for myself.

Julian started off as a self insert, but changed over the years. Naga started as a self insert, he's slowly drifting. 'Yourself' is often the baseline for a character, and then you make tweaks.

I think most characters share some attributes with their authors.
