Hello, I am currently working on a Female Senator sent to Iraq to investigave the death of a soldier where she will uncover all kinds of coverups. I don't have a problem with the writing of the story, the dialogues or the actions (bunch of it!). My main problem is I am not so sure I can tranfer the right feeling or emotions to this character as a male writer. Is there any way to get around this and still be fair to my female MC. More importantly, I am writing her in the first person while everyone else is in the third person. Will my sexual orientation (Straight male) be a problem? Hints anyone before I get too far? I am in the early chapters BTW.
