7 Things Women Writers are sick of hearing.

See more here.

“Why is your lead always a girl?”

“Who’s her love interest, then?”

“What kind of young adult do you write?” (I don’t write YA…)

“Oh, you do fantasy? Like Twilight?”

“Women just can’t write men. I mean, men can kind of do both just because it’s been done so much, but women always write men too girly.”

“Are you going to hide your name like JK Rowling so you can get published?”

AND THE WORST ONE: Upon hearing my writing group is predominantly women… “Oh, I don’t think that’s for me. I do serious writing.”
