Thats kind of true Scoobs. You probably cannot write something you dont relate with, even if this is not present in your real world.
For example, you can create a character that has all the positive traits you would like to meet in a certain situation. He would be your hero, or at least, someone you can relate with.
But heroes dont exist in real life. We have a lot of people trying to survive basically. Except maybe Federer.
