Hello, As a guy, I have some difficulty writing female characters. It seems like a daunting task. I can describe their beauty but they come off as flat personalities, or extensions of the men. When I write female MC's, they tend to be kind of badass, but in a way they're just written like men but described as attractive women. I feel like that's kind of cheating the reader out of seeing a strong female touch in the work. I have tried to broaden my horizons a bit by reading Anais Nin and some other female writers. I have one idea for a complex female character. She would be Arab-American and sort of torn between traditionalism and modernism. I think I can build actual personality facets but I'm still worried she'll come off either stereotypically female or just more guy-like to balance it out. I want her personality to really shine through. Any tips?
