In my book, I am writing as a fourteen year old who is a leader of a medieval republic. My main problem is while I want to the reader to think of him as a teen who has been thrusted into a seat of power, I seem to drift towards him looking like a complaining teen. Am I the only one who has had a character who seems to want to be something that you don't want it to be? Should I accept the character as a complaining teen or what? What is kind of ironic is that I am fourteen so I thought it would be easy to write this character, but wow have I been wrong.... Thanks in advance.
