For some inexplicable reason it’s 10:00 pm and I’m wide awake while my sweet man is asleep. Luckily my smart phone is keeping me occupied as I sit here in my bed.
A lot of things have come across my mind. Some mundane, such as “I sure am glad I got the laundry done today,” and others slightly more weighty (which is why they’ll stay in my mind for a while.)
One big thing that can see the light of day (or night, rather) is how to create good female characters. While my experience is not universal it certainly had common elements to the stories of others. It’s easy to say “I want to create women and girls who are funny, smart, and happy to be themselves,” but doing it is a whole other ball of wax. Because even if you feel good about yourself most of the time we all have moments of self-doubt.
How do you feel about yourself tonight?
