The protagonist in my latest attempt at writing something passable (see http://www.writingforums.com/showthread.php?t=69668, if I can be so bold as to link to an exterior site) is also the narrator. However, he is neither my gender nor my age - he's a nineteen-year-old guy, and I'm a fifteen-year-old girl. Am I being presumptuous by trying to write from his perspective? Or is it acceptable as a creative effort? Also, I'm worried that he and some of the other characters are stereotypes, which I hate, because I'm a real character-led writer. I've tried to round them out as much as possible, but I don't know what else I can do. If any of you are interested, I can give outlines and let you judge for yourselves, but for now I'll leave you with that.
