Identifying with a character definitely makes it easier for me to write them. Scully would be the prototypical example for me. I didn't have to make the slightest effort to think myself into her head or her prose rhythms; the first time I started to write from her point of view, I was already there. So I suppose it might be easier to only write characters where I could do that. With other people it's been a much longer struggle to try to get that moment of clarity where I can really grasp their mindset. But for me that's part of the point of writing, you know? Expanding my understanding of the way that other people see the world. Otherwise I might as well just stay inside my own head.
