Something that I've just noticed about my writing is that MANY of my characters have suffered abuse at the hands of their fathers (or important father figures). Mostly it's my male characters. I have thousands of characters across all my worlds, many of whom have been forgotten, lost in the fog of stories started but later abandoned. Now, I am NOT a published author, and I don't like giving all my characters the same past, but no matter how hard I try, nearly all of them have daddy issues. One simply doesn't get along with his father. Nothing has happened between them, but they're cold and distant. Another was abandoned by his father, and abused by his mother. Another three were abused by their fathers. NONE of them have suffered sexual abuse at the hands of their fathers but a lot have been beaten and I don't think I have a single character, male or female, who has a good relationship with his/her father. Now, what I'm curious about is this: what does this tell you about me?
