Which of your characters is a portrayal of you?
None of them and all of them. Lainey isn’t me (neither is Amy or Melinda or Dr. Stewart), but pretty much all of my characters have characteristics I a) like about myself, b) dislike about myself, c) would like to possess. It’s impossible to write without infusing bits of yourself into your work, but the characters I write are not me. Just like the characters actors portray are not them.
