Hi everyone, I've been considering writing a story about a person and their struggle with a specific vice in their life. I want to personify the vice, but I feel like this has surely been done many times before... although I can't seem to find any good examples of this anywhere. The best example I can think of is in "His Dark Materials" trilogy, the author personifies death and allows it to communicate with the main character. I want to do something similar with a specific vice instead of death. Does anybody know of any stories where any sort of characteristic or vice is personified (greed, addiction, lust, etc.) so that "it" actually has a voice of its own. I really don't want to completely rewrite what somebody else has already done before if possible. Thanks so much for the help!!
