The secret to writing a woman is that we're basically just like men, only treated differently. Ironically, it took me a long time to get good at writing women, because I myself had all these ideas in my head about what a 'stereotypical' woman was like. This will be a good opportunity to stretch yourself to write from a different POV. Just let her be who she is, and don't worry so much about whether she's ''womanly'' enough. We come in all varieties.

For right now, try not to think about whether your book fits perfectly into a genre. Just do your own unique thing and you can figure all that out later.

Of course I'm always here if you wanna run anything by me.
