Hi guys and gals. this is probably exactly the same as lily's male vs female character's threat. but i wanted a bit more direct help. Firstly, i'm a guy, i'm also 17 so i havnt realy had time to retire and devote myself to understanding the female mind. so i'm a bit clueless when it comes to making an interesting female character without her apearing empty. and empty is my biggest fear because the female in question is pivotal to the plot. I can get by well enough making random girls looking like actual girls but wen it comes to someone who is going to be there for the long haul, i dont think i can make her look real enough Ok so background. It's one of those fantasy/ tolkien alternate realities. There has to be the right amount of female discrimination for it to look like the midle ages, but have the men be smart enough to realise the value of the female mind. The character's called Dawn. she lives in this vilage in the midle of nowhere. Her father s fairly protective of her but that's about it on his list of things to add to the story. So halfway though the book and a whole lot of wandering across the countryside on some quest he is totaly failing at, the main character turns up in this village. it's one of those meant to be things where the both fall in love. and that is basicaly it. they are ment to fall in love. it's one of those wheel of time things, where the same thing plays out half a million times. if you put the main character in a jesus position, then she comes up in second place. not only because they're in love but also because she has some crazy powers and knowedge locked up in her head that is vital to the sucess of "Jesus's" quest. Ok so Dawn. She has to be girly and inocent-of-the-world enough so that she apeals to the clasic boy's fantasy. but still strong enough so that she actualy adds to the plot and isnt just a stupid doll who trails around behind him. I'm probably the most ignorant prsn around wen it comes to the female mind and i don't want what is probably my 2nd most important character to look hollow. Otherwise i might aswll put the story on a shelf before i totaly wreck it with hollowness. Any fantastic help would be great.
