Hey! Thanks for the insight.
I think it's really interesting that you say that as my main consultant has voiced a similar feeling toward not wanting their Aspergers to be the focus of who they are. For Ward, as time has gone by, my co-writer and I have realized that his Aspergers is something he needs to reconnect with and sorta rationalize for himself. Just that realization that he's been pushed in a certain direction in his life and that that has made him into who he is.
If you're comfortable with it, I was wondering if you'd be willing to expand upon your experiences? Things you'd want someone writing a character with Aspergers to know? What you'd want to see? What you think should be avoided? And anything that additionally comes to mind for you.
It really annoys me when people try to blame my Asperges for something that I did wrong. Once I was supposed to tell a receptionist my phone number with my mom around. I may have started off too fast or I mispoke or something and I had to say my phone number twice. My mom later blamed my Aspergers for it.
