Django Wexler This is a complicated question! George R. R. Martin, asked something similar, once said, "Well, I've always considered women to be people." And that's…moreThis is a complicated question! George R. R. Martin, asked something similar, once said, "Well, I've always considered women to be people." And that's the heart of it -- IMHO, the key to writing good female characters is NOT treating them like some kind of weird aliens that need unique treatment. They're just *characters*. Good characters need history, motivation, voice, conflict, none of which are particularly related to gender.

So, basically, my advice is -- don't try to write Strong Female Characters. Just write good characters, whatever their gender.

I hope this doesn't sound dismissive of the question! I know that it's not easy to get out of that frame, it's definitely something I struggle with on an ongoing basis. And none of this means you *shouldn't* care about having female characters in the story; only that I think the best way to approach them is as humans, not as Female Characters.(less)

“Have you never picked up a book you've read before, and found it speaks to you in a new way?”
Django Wexler, The Forbidden Library

“You got rid of him?” “For the moment,” Winter said. “Nothing confuses an officer like violently agreeing with him.”
Django Wexler, The Thousand Names

“The name meant "Angel of Victory," which Jaffa supposed was appropriate enough. The Divine Hand himself had started the fashion for taking the names of angels when he'd called himself Vale-dan-Rahksa, the Angel of Vengeance. At the rate the Council was expanding, there would soon be a serious shortage of angels. Jaffa wondered what would happen when they ran out of manly, intimidating names and were reduced to naming themselves after the Angel of Sisterly Affection or the Angel of Small Crafts.”
Django Wexler, The Thousand Names
