Female characters


Recently, I’ve seen a lot of posts encouraging people to write a specific type of female character: a very feminine woman who kicks butt, has a sarcastic remark for every occasion, and truly cares about social issues. If you want to write a character like her, that’s great! We need all kinds of women, and that type of character is one of them.

Unfortunately, I have also seen posts criticizing perfectly well-developed female characters for not fitting the above description, by being too masculine, not being aggressive enough to kick butt, etc. That’s terrible! As much as we need women in literature who are feminine, combative, and sarcastic, we also need women who are masculine, passive, or have a different sense of humor. Please don’t limit your female characters to a certain type just because it’s the type that Tumblr loves the most at the moment!

Guys, writer friends, ANYONE, I **URGENTLY** need your help.

I just found this: http://www.letsgowrimos.com/

and… I don’t know. Do you think it’s legitimate? Have you heard anything about it? I’m trying to find rules—did the whole thing have to be written in NaNo, or only parts, and… I’m kind of freaking out.

Because this could be a really great opportunity. Or it could be a nightmare. I could be finding future—or selling my soul. This isn’t the kind of thing to be rushed into, but I only *JUST* found out about it, and…

I know that none of you guys are EXPERTS here, but you’re also the only ones I have to reach out to on such short notice.

I don’t know. I don’t KNOW you guys. What do you think I should do? Should I go for it? Does it sound sketchy? I’m trying to find rules, but I can’t—not really. It sounds like you can upload ANYTHING for possible publication. I just… I don’t know.

If anyone has any advice, or thoughts, I’d love to hear it. This is… a big deal. And unfortunately, time is ticking down.

 For additional information, I have **NO INTEREST** in attempting to self-publish, only in that possible 10-Authors-Are-Picked deal.

As well, here’s more information:


The book I would attempt to submit would be the first novel in the series that is, in a way, my soul.  I could handle if it was rejected, but if it was stolen, or abused, or my Golden Opportunity turns out to only be a plated trapdoor… I don’t know.  It would be the end of me.

If you show someone something you’ve written, you give them a sharpened stake, lie down in your coffin, and say, ‘When you’re ready’.
