Do you find it harder to write from a male or female's point of view?
It is harder to write… the more different someone is from me, the more difficult they are to write. Gender is only one part of that, however, and so some characters who are very like me, but maybe… maybe a woman, would be easier to write than someone who is very different from me but is a guy. But that's all part of it.
Early in my career, before I got published, I was actually really bad at this; but the main thing I learned from that era of my writing was that I was writing people to a role in the story. It wasn't that I was bad a writing women, it was that I was writing all women as the love interest. Which resulted in bad story telling and flat characters. And if you start to be able to learn: treat each character they are the protagonist of their own story, treat each character like they see themselves, not as a bit part, but as the story themselves; and start to explore who they are rather than putting them in a role in the story, your characters will get better all around.
