Any of my works about any of my Author Avatar characters veer WILDLY within the first hundred lines or so into nigh-unreadable territory, likely because even I can't believe that I'm like the way I'm writing myself (and not even in the Wish Fulfillment vein either). I'm not even putting myself down, either; I'm actually being objective about that assessment. Basically, if you're going to put yourself into the shoes of the protagonist, be diplomatic about what parts of yourself you imbue your character WITH, because you don't want your story to be unreadable thanks to the sheer YOU-ness of the protagonist (then again, that's probably just me/only applies to me since I'm VERY screwed up in the head).
