I have finally managed to create the complete skeleton that I want to write, and now am in the final stages of editing before I start to add muscle, sinew and flesh. However I have stumbled across a problem. I lack female characters. Not because I have created a world where females are walking meat and have no purpose other than bearing children and maintaining a house, but because I simply fear that I cannot write a female character properly. I have somehow only managed to scrap together only 3 female characters (bad, I know) with only 2 of them being of major importance. Furthermore, I have ditched the idea of writing one as a PoV as it would be easier to write about her from her male partners perspective. How big of a problem is this? Should I simply switch genders of some characters and sacrifice a little bit of characterization just to have more female characters? And how would one go about writing a female PoV when they have only ever been able to observe from the outside. I know many, many male writers suffer from falling into stereotypes and simply end up boxing their characters in. My second question is more straightforward. Is it better to write a PoV to completion, or write the chapters in chronological order?
