Oh certainly. I think that he wrote into her something of what he would have liked to experience with his daughter Tabitha. I'm as down on pop psychology as the next fellow (but isn't it fun?), however in this case his failure to keep a good relationship with his daughter must have been one of the catastrophes of his life, and at first creating Titty and later and more explicitly Dot, must have been cathartic for him, in the same way that writing the books themselves must have been a relief, along with the tension, and the Critic on the Hearth.
