Hi everyone, I'm in need of some help right now, as I'm writing really far out of my comfort zone right now. Currently, I have a Sci-Fi story that revolves around a single family: -A Father, 49 year old doctor. -An oldest son, 20. Currently fighting in a war. Joined to impress his father. -A younger son: 16, defiant, and possibly about to be drafted into a war. Is willing to join because his father is now dissulusioned with the war, and he sees a way to get defy him by drafting/enlisting. Also wants to join his brother. -A 9-10 year old daughter. I imagine her tomboyish (being an all male faimily). She has an obsession with a futuristic city near their home that their family's social class is barred from entering. The mother had a mental breakdown four years ago, and commited suicide by getting too close to the futuristic city (which, outside its walls, is a kill zone). This family's lifestyle is a mix between 1930's and 18th century agrarian lifestyle (They have a radio, and some solar powered things, but must pull plows by horse i.e. no gas/tractors/trucks). The majority of their duties is tending the land. It is extremely difficult work, and leaves little time for other things. Now, I'm a young-male myself, so I'm more inclined to write through the perspecitve of a young man, and often in some kind of combat/leadership role. What are some ways a young girl would think? At her age, what would be her ideas on things like boys/sex/love etc? How do girls sometimes view their relationships with their brothers? How do daughter-mother relationships differ from father-son or mother-son relationships? I already know she's a tomboy, so other girls will make fun of her for being dirty and playing with other boy's etc, but I still don't want to make her interchangable with a little boy. What would be the kind of work a girl her age would do on a farm? I'm flying blind here, so does anybody often write through this perspective? I'm basically starting her character from scratch right here, so I'm needing some help brainstorming.
