Présentation de l'éditeur

The misconceptions around what writers mean when we talk about strong female characters make them one of the most difficult character types to write well. Do we have to strip away all femininity to make a female character strong? How do we keep a strong female character likeable? If we're writing historical fiction or science fiction or fantasy based on a historical culture, how far can we stray from the historical records when creating our female characters?

In Strong Female Characters: A Busy Writer's Guide you'll learn
- what “strong female characters” means,
- the keys to writing characters who don’t match stereotypical male or female qualities,
- how to keep strong female characters likeable, and
- what roles women actually played in history.

Each book in the Busy Writer’s Guide series is intended to give you enough theory so that you can understand why things work and why they don’t, but also enough examples to see how that theory looks in practice. In addition, they provide tips and exercises to help you take it to the pages of your own story with an editor's-eye view.

Strong Female Characters is a mini-book of approximately 4,000 words.

So the author starts this book by saying that you shouldn't give a female character male attributes to make her strong. Then she uses numerous personal examples of her own life to basically say why she (the author herself) is a strong female with supposedly "male" attributes. In each section, she sites personal life experiences. She goes into why she doesn't like shopping and lacks empathy. She then uses the strong female examples of Katniss Everdeen of Hunger Games and Starbuck (omits her first name) from the tv show, Battlestar Galactica. Both of whom exhibit strongly "male" attributes. My question is where is this hard to write strong female who has female attributes? Where is that example? Uhm, the reason for the book is to write a believable strong female character, right? I found this book to be an odd account of the author's life and work while not really helping me to form better, stronger female characters. She does eventually explain how to make a masculine female character more lovable & relatable though that isn't what I was looking for.

Using examples from contemporary speculative fiction, she develops the contrast created by the strong female character that does not invalidated her femaleness. The critical elements of background, circumstances, those they love, and those who love them are all needed. This booklet provides insight.

I've always found it difficult to create strong females that don't come across as a bitch, but this book has really useable advice for breaking that problem. It has examples I can associate with, and gets to the point quickly. Recommended.

This is a great little booklet for writers, seasoned and novice. Marcy Kennedy writes clearly with lots of good examples. Looking forward to more of this series.

BTW, I have a strong female main character in my books and some of my friends/beta readers (all strong women themselves) give me a hard time because my protagonist sometimes cries. Thanks, Marcy, for the vindication. It's okay for strong females to also be females!!

I've had a fair amount of difficulty not writing your stereotypical female characters, and finally got tired of it and picked this guide up. I own a lot of other Busy Writers Guides so I figured this would be useful.

It's clear, concise, and to the point. Lots of good ideas, excellent links to outside articles, and has helped me gain a new perspective on writing strong, stand-out female characters - critical since I want to start a series with a female protagonist!
