The Keys to Writing from the Opposition Gender

Writing from the perspective of the opposite gender can be difficult and often frustrating. What are tips and tricks for mastering the art of writing from a different gender view point?

  • I think maybe reading as much as you can from characters in the opposite gender is a good way to get a handle on it. – chocmalt 5 years ago

  • I think this is more of a problem for men than for women, which would be something to touch on. From a very young age, women are taught to empathize with male characters, but men are not expected to identify with female protagonists. – Kristian Wilson 5 years ago

I enjoy dystopian novels, the ideas they portray and the characters they create are intriguing and fitting of this time. Dystopian societies can be written off as mere fictional places, but this is a great description of their importance and relevance in the lives of readers.

Wow, I have read fanfiction before but this article have given me a whole new perspective, and I already liked fanfiction pieces. I love how you approach the question posed and the way that you discuss it. I feel originality can be important but I agree that it shouldn’t be the ultimate deciding power. I feel that the reader is what is important and if the writer gives the reader what they want, then that is what really matters. Writers are all influenced in some way by what they have read themselves. True originality can be hard to come by.

I loved the article! I think that looking at the influencing origin stories for the Disney Princesses is really interesting. Looking at varying versions of the same story is always intriguing and surprising. Great Job!
