I’m sure I’ll catch flak for this one, but I have to tell the truth—men and women write differently. Their tones, their words, their sentence construction is different. I often prefer a man’s stylings.
I read a lot of books, and in the past few years I’ve delved into a lot of manuscripts. By far—and not always, but most often—the male writers get to the point sooner. They jump into action and begin the story without hesitation. Their characters are people with character.
The people in stories written by men don’t hold back. They speak plainly—often boldly and crudely, but not always—and they leave the reader in no doubt about who they are and what they want. These characters have clear goals, strong motivations, and few hesitations. They act, they act out, and they press forward. Stories written by men tend to have exciting action, action that draws the reader deep.
The emotion is up front, the goals plain, the trip to the finish filled with fun or terror or disbelief. Does everyone need to write this way? I find myself wishing that more women would give their characters the frankness that male authors do. That female writers would pour it on, turn it up, go for the gusto more often.
I wish they’d come out and write some of the outrageous declarations that men put into the mouths of their characters. I know there are different styles of presentation and countless ways to introduce characters and plot and tone. But I suggest to female writers that it may be worth your time to take the restraints off when you write your next character. Give him a voice you’ve not used before. One that grabs the reader’s attention. You might be shocked at what your story turns into.
