A writer has a hard job.
We have to write about things that we may not know. While it is always a good idea to always pull from experience, there are times when that cannot be done. As someone who is a woman, I would admit I am not great at writing men all the time but I generally try to portray them as being human beings. However, as someone who has read a lot of books from men and women alike, I know that sometimes men aren’t the greatest at writing for women.
I am ofcourse not including everyone and it does depend on the genre as this kind of thing is more prevalent in romance novels where the writer is basically fantasizing about this ideal woman. And while that is fine, these ideal women don’t actually poses a lot of human characteristics. I understand that not every woman is the same but I personally don’t know any women who would enjoy sleeping in a bra unless it is just a comfy sports bra.
There are a lot of similar things mentioned in books written by men that always leave my mind boggled. So a few women came together and shared all the things that should help writers in the future. Scroll below to take a look for yourself.
As a woman myself, I have to agree with all of these.
Unless you want a rolled ankle, do not break off your heels.
The pain of underboob sweat is real and it is not attractive at all.
Wearing a bra that is a size too small is not sexy and it just hurts.
That is true and we cannot just pee standing up.
It can be a serious pain if we are wearing a jumpsuit as we would have to get basically naked to use the toilet.
That is mostly the reason I take someone with me whenever I go to the restroom.
It all depends on the mood. Sometimes you want to look fabulous, other times, you couldn’t care less.
It is all just in service of cleaning our bodies.
And fashion varies when it comes to an individual.
Women are human and we do all the stuff that men do.
Usually, our hair will defy gravity when the clip is removed.
As someone who has broken a phone screen when sitting down, I can attest to the problem of overly tight and small pockets.
It is never as easy as they make it look in the adverts.
And periods can depend on the person. Some don’t feel pain at all while others cannot get up from their bed.
It is not all about fashion and makeup for us.
A superhero wearing heels? Yeah, that is not going to happen.
This just made me remember the pain and blood I had to deal with when I broke my nail.
