The description of people who write is so accurate. It truly is insane how much time you spend with people that aren’t real. Replaying moments with those people that never happened — paying extra attention to minute details. Then having to accurately describe surreal unusual things realistically. You feel like a mental patient. lol.
I’ve fallen in love with my protagonist. She’s so multifaceted. Strong. I choose a female protagonist for many reasons. There is so much power in femininity that a lot of people don’t comprehend. Not even some women understand it themselves.
I’m shying away from stereotypes. I‘m also shying away from the extreme feminist views. Some feminist slip out to the other side and turn it into a men hating crusade. “I won’t let no man sweep me off my feet or help me” etc. etc. You’re kind of making it about MEN and how MEN are suppressing you when it should be about finding power and strength within your gender. And using that strength and power to strengthen others.
To me, you’re not erasing the lines of gender capability, you’re defining it further. I want to take the stance of truly erasing those lines. I’ve seen the same problems with the issue of racism. People are people no matter the gender, religion, sexuality or race. Everyone has feelings, hurts desires and fears.
The weakest people are the people who refuse help because of the person who’s helping them is a man/woman/black/white/yellow/teal/gay/transexual/transgender. These topics absolutely fascinate me because I don’t truly understand how someone could have so much hate, or disdain rather, for something that’s not harming or concerning them.
