Can anyone provide me with advice on how to write Apsie and NT characters?

In one work, I'm writing an Aspie character that I don't want to make into carbon copy of myself; in another work, I'm writing a character that's based off of myself, and particularly a lot of things I went through as a child, but is an NT. (And I want him to have a slightly different personality.)

Does anyone have any expertise on this?

If you see any thread by me on here that isn't "proselytizing," I can't explain that because that's obviously impossible; because again, all I've ever done on here is "proselytize."

Base the NT character on a struggle you have or had that has little to nothing to do with being on the spectrum. One of my female characters isn’t on the spectrum but she has severe body image and perfectionism issues. I have both and even NTs have body image and perfectionism issues. Good luck!
