Autobiography for a fictional character - is it a good idea? I was thinking of writing an autobiography for a fictional character of mine and I was doing some research on the internet, where I came across 'fictional autobiography' on Wikipedia. I did some more research and it seems not many authors are against it, even though David Copperfield is an fictional autobiography. So, what are everyone's views on it? Pros and cons? Thanks! Edit - Though I would add what Wikipedia have explained about it (whether their right or not).
