As lovers, the difference between men and women is that women can love all day long, but men only at times.-W. Somerset Maugham

So I usually, steadfastly write female protagonists. I know women right? I want to explore the lives of women after all.

But what happens when the character you're most interested in is the male? Existential crisis? Writer's block?

Nah. Maybe if this was a few months ago, then I'd be like that. But nah. I'm actually excited. I'm loving this character.

He reminds me of myself. Raised by a single mom. He longs for his absentee dad. He's the life of the party, but inside he's got all of THESE INTENSE FEELINGS AND PASSIONS.

Is he a Byronic hero? Idek. He very well could be. I never thought of that. He doesn't brood as of yet though ha.
