I'm writing my second proper story at the moment, in my first one, my main character was basically me. It made it easy when he came up against problems or conversations because I's just think well what would I do? Now I've started this second one and this seems like a newbie thing to be doing so I want to try and sway from doing that but it's a nasty habit I've picked up. Has anybody else done this before and do you have any tips on how not to? I seem to be fine with other characters but it's just my protagonist who I keep seeing as myself.
