I was wondering what character ages you guys prefer to write as the main character.
In most of my writing, I prefer writing characters from ages 18 onwards, since it's more believable for them to be experienced. And it's easier to believe that they'll be sought out for advice and everything. I actually find it odd that I could never manage to write a main character who was my age. Still, it's not as easy to make them angst and expect an audience to feel sorry for them if they do, what with them supposed to be aware of how harsh this world is. Which also makes it harder to write them as believably naive.
So, how about the rest of you? Any particular advantages/disadvantages?
