I know it’s intimidating. Women are complicated, with all that biology shit going on up in there. We can straight-up digest food, breathe, pump blood, walk, talk and grow a baby all at once. Bitches be crazy, amiright?
But stay calm. You can imagine alien invasions and vampire kings and serial killers and what-not and you’ve never even seen those things, whereas you’ve actually conversed with women. That’s some solid research right there, my friend. You’re already one step ahead.
Now, here are some step-by-step instructions to ease your way into writing good female characters.
Step 1: Write a character. It’s a dude, isn’t it?
Step 2: Give him boobs.
Step 3: Congratulations! You have written a female character! They’re not all that different to guys in the end, are they? Give yourself a pat on the back.
