Help with the Female point of view
« on: May 27, 2013, 01:50:10 PM »
I am having some trouble with writing from a perspective of a female, and most times it comes out sounding stiff and fake (with minor characters that don't have a that much development). Also love interests (and heart brake leaving someone that she has fallen for) from female perspective without making it seem sexist and stereotypical view of woman

any tips,
some views from woman writers would be nice and very helpfully 

~~~
the writing that I'm doing has one of the main protagonist is female actually she is the main protagonist (sort of) she is for the first couple of chapters until she meets a boy on her travels in a certain city but because of her own views and wanting to be free and travel the world she leaves then realises she loves him but can't bring herself to go back :P

ps. just for people wanting to know he comes after her leaving his commitments for what she gave him Then some stuff happens and they travel together like living from day to day

Talk to all the women you know! Ask them all kinds of questions. If they have a sense of humor, approach them as if they're almost alien .  ;D  How come women communicate so well with each other using only looks and body language? What's the first thing you look for in a man? How important is your mother? What do you think of powerful women? How do you do that turban thing over your wet hair? Depending on what your story is, you can ask tons of questions.
Work hard. Believe. Take a chance.

Just a possible approach--more aural, less visual. The voice gets to her. The eyes are nice, the butt may be firm, but it's the voice that does it.
