Laurie asked Margaret Atwood:

Do you have a different process when you set out to write from a male point of view as oppose to a female one?

Margaret Atwood The process of writing is the same, but the vantage point is of course different. But it is different for Each male character… because they are not all the same. I do notice that my younger male characters swear more. And they get angry faster; but my older ones and more saintly ones don't do either.
