"Most people think that an intriguing plot is what makes a story good, but the truth is that exciting plots are made up of original and well-developed characters. Not only are characters with hidden depths and secrets more fun to read about, they’re also more fun to write about.

It’s a great idea for you, the author, to try and get to know your characters before you begin writing. We asked a team of scientists, mathematicians, and creative writing gurus from around the world: “What’s the easiest way for writers to get to know their characters?” Hands down, the experts all agreed the single best way is to fill out our 46-Question Character Questionnaire”:

Anonymous said: Hiya any useful tips on how to write a book from a females POV and a males POV ... thanks 😊

bibliophylum:

Boy can I relate to this. I’ve gone back and forth in between which character to have as my main, should I make it third person or first person, or even double POV. I know how confusing and indecisive it can get when coming to a decision. Personally, my tip is decide who’s voice you’re most comfortable in. If it’s a female, it’s a female, if it’s male, it’s male. But find who you’re stronger in, and go off from there. Find the story you want to tell, who you believe your audience will be, how old are the characters, ect. Get a little more into the story other than just their gender, it’ll help in the long run. But here’s a few links I hope can help!

Feel free to message us if you’d like more, off or on anon. I do hope these tips and articles are useful!
