I am a lala. I am new here, but if these first few weeks are anything to go by, I will spend 87.26% of my time on this website asking people to stop referring to me as "he."

comment Pitfalls of writing a main character of different gender to the author, specifically first-person perspective?
@Joze, I think the idea is that females are specifically stereotyped in stories while males get a broader and more humanized portrayal, so there wouldn't be one for males. However, you can feel free to create one if you feel that male characters are too cardboard. :-)

comment How do you make your characters likable?
@One Monkey, there are some stories where even the main character actually does very little, and rather just has a lot of things happen to them. I believe these can actually be good stories, but it is very hard to make such a character likable.

@Indoril Nerevar, I admit I have not seen that movie, but I would bet the "tough guy" still does things, or else I can't imagine he would be considered the tough guy in the first place. That doesn't sound like a passive guy who just whines and never actually does anything.

@Lynn Beighley it might be a version of the classic "Write what you know" advice.
