My topic is "a fictional character falls in love with its writer". I have the PERFECT ideas, but I just don't know how to write them. Does the character fall in love with ME, as the writer? Or should the story be about someone writing a book, and in THAT book, the character falls in love?

    If you are the writer of the story that the fictional character is in, then yes, it's you.

    But if you are writing about a fictional character in someone else's story, then it's the author of that story.

    But the problem I'm having is how to write a story within a story? I mean, just italicize it?

  • Creative Writing -

    Not necessarily.

    Here's an example of a nice, short story-within-a-story:

    See what you think.

    Wow. I've always loved Poe, but it's so hard for me to break down his writing and understand it. Haha. Thanks, though! It helped a bit!
