Answer this question

  • Fiction novel problem: female point of view?

Incidentally, I'm a tomboy, and I have the even worse problem of having girls that are either practically guys or super girly, and boys who are either Ruff N Tuff Gangstas Yo or sissies. Here's my opinion: Try thinking of her as a feminist. In a good way. She's feminine, but she can stand up for herself and stuff. Being someone who loves shopping for purses doesn't make a girl the screamy-giggly-emotional girly girl. Come to think of it, even someone who's emotional can be tough. Strong women are women who can look after themselves and brave the ups and downs of life all while enjoying the novelties of being a woman. In my humble tomboy's opinion. Add: By the way, 'opted to choose' literally means 'chose to choose'. You should put 'opted for' instead. Just a tip from a writer to another. I hope I didn't just annoy you.

It's difficult to answer this question without knowing exactly how she sounds right now. My advice would be to read other books with female viewpoints. If you like SF/F/H, try the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris, the Kitty Norville books by Carrie Vaughn, or the Spellmason Chronicles by Anton Strout. If you like mysteries, try Susan Conant or Laurien Berenson. Also, watch movies and pay attention to how the women in them talk and act.
