I'm over at Black Gate Magazine this morning (technically yesterday afternoon, if you want to get pedantic), making a plea for writers trying to write women.
I had been, at one point in my past, privy to a enormous internet argument about how terribly some male writers write women. The primary complaint of the defenders of bad writing of female characters was, and this is a literal quote, ” writing women is hard.”
Congratulations, random male internet commenter, you have accidentally his upon an immutable truth. Writing women is hard. Writing men is hard. Writing a compelling scene is hard. Writing plot is hard.
Writing is hard.
