Sketch of Lora

(Lora is a character in a series I’ve been working on. Only two posts so far: A Mystical Treasure and The Bus Ride Home.)

My protagonist. I’m having a hard time figuring her out because I’ve based her personality on my own. Go figure.

This is what she looks like in the first scene, when she’s 17 years old. Her appearance is also loosely based on my own (from a picture of myself when I was younger).

Anyone else base a character’s personality on their own? I’m curious if it made writing the character easier or harder for you. If it was more difficult, did it work out in the end? And if so, how did you make it work?
