Okay so I have an asexual character in my story but I'm not entirely sure how to go about writing him as asexual? Like I have a few ideas but just don't want to write his sexuality wrong... Do you have any tips about writing from a different background?

Incorporate it into the story just as naturally as you would incorporate a hetero romance.
* You might have them say it explicitly if you wanted. (”I’m asexual, Mom”)

*  If they are in a romantic relationship, you could write a conversation where they explain to potential significant other that they’re ace.
(Character B) “So I know you said you’re asexual. I’m wondering if you still do relationships or if you date? Or if you’re aromantic? Sorry if this is coming out wrong just wondering if I can ask you out for coffee or not”
(Character A) “Aww you’re so cute when you’re flustered. To answer your questions, yes I date and I’d love to go on a coffee date with you. I’m very down with coffee dates and long walks in the park, not down with making out or anything like that. Meet you at Starbucks, Friday 3pm?”

* They might crack jokes about it to close friends (or their significant other, if they have one).
”You know, for someone who’s ace you spend a lot of time staring at my ass”, she joked.
”I’m pretty sure you’re supposed to look at wondrous works of art, not touch them”, Anna replied.

If you want a book rec, Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire has an asexual protagonist and its very well written (and is just an amazing book). That might give also give you some ideas.

Thanks for sending in this ask!
