I love the premise of Stephen King's The Dark Half, but at the same time, it feels kind of cheesy to me. Many of Stephen King's characters are writers, and I don't feel like many other writers can get away with the kind of stuff Stephen King manages to get away with. If I were to make many of my characters writers, I'd be accused of making them Mary Sues or copies of myself or something else. It makes sense that we should write about ourselves, being that we are our biggest frame of reference. We have insight into our own lives.
