My biggest problem in writing is writing a realistic main character. I don't have trouble writing their biographies, planning them, giving them realistic traits, flaws, dreams, etc. I'm fine with the before-hand planning, but the actual writing leaves me stumped. I can write supporting characters well enough, but my hero always comes across as being more detached from the readers than the rest of the characters. I think my problem is that I know how other people act, but not so much how they feel or think, so while my hero acts normal it's almost impossible for readers to connect to him as intimately as I'd like. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can overcome it?
