Whenever I write a story from multiple pov it is often from both male and female perspective and I use third person. But even though I'm a woman I find it a lot easier to write third person POV from a male perspective rather than the female, have anyone else experienced that? I find my female pov's are a lot more convincing in first person, even though I somewhat connect that POV with chic-lit, and even though my novels can sometimes have a tone that can be similar I am not writing chic-lit nor do I aspire to do so, even though I am about to write a story that from the plot could well be one I want to write in third person and use a slightly more serious voice. now that I think of it I think that is some kind of trademark for my stories; i take a theme, an idea that could have been a chic lit novel and look at it from another perspective, turn it into a more serious story, trying to add some depth to it and a lot of emotions. two of my three stories have been that way and the fourth will definitely be too. even the fifth that is only a newly planted seed yet is something similar. only the third one is a totally different kind of story and maybe that is why I struggle with it. but back to the issue; should I give up and just write my stories in first person (forgetting about the multiple pov and losing value because of the different perspectives of the problems or is there a way to get better at writing even the female pov's in the same convincing way? OR (and this just came to my mind) should I drop the female perspective altogether?
