I’m always a little nervous when I incorporate adult female characters into my writing because I’m never sure what they are thinking. I have a mother, sister, daughter, niece, and wife of nearly 43 years and I still haven’t figured out the female mind. I recently featured a female as the main character in one of my short stories for the first time. I must have gotten it right because the publisher loved it and plans to run it as their cover story next month. That gives me a little more confidence, but I’m still nervous.
