So I have this character her name is Isabella Regina Rei. She goes by Isa for short. She's from a series I'm working on with a friend called Nola Style. I have everyone I was his backstory is worked out and the kind of struggles that they go through. I know that there are characters out there who have eating disorders however they only seem to be anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa which are both very very serious eating disorder's but I wanted to do something different. I thought about giving this character night time eating disorder. Which is basically when getting up to get a midnight snack becomes a compulsion. Of course that leads to weight gain and feeling guilty about eating binge eating episodes. I've also done my research on this topic as much as I can in my free time and I feel like this would be an eating disorder that would be relatively easy to write about. I want to know if the seems contrived or if this can actually work I mean I feel like personally I can however I am in an experienced writer. I wrote fanfiction and God was a terrible... going to something this serious I'm afraid that I'm going to those people who won't execute it correctly. One of my main goals with this Nola style series is to tackle real world problems. Now don't get me wrong the series of all dark and gritty with people with problems it's about people trying to lead good lives who just so happen to run into problems. Isa is one of those characters for some reason to me has been very very difficult to write. And I know the direction I want to go with her but at the same point in time I'm just not sure about this whole eating disorder thing and I'm like well I could go with the whole depression route I mean I myself do you have depression and they say write what you know. However, writing a Isa with depression would be like writing myself into a character. And I know there's no problem with the writing yourself into a character even putting pieces of your own personality into a character. That's just not something I want to do. Long story short do you think I could write a character with nighttime eating disorder or NED what do you think I should give her something else to struggle through? Thank you all in advance. I truly do appreciate it.
