  • notfadeawayI'm working on a script for a comic I'm creating. My cast is primarily female and I'm worried I have too many women. When you're writing CM (since your cast is largely female) do you ever think, "there should be a guy in here somewhere?" And if so, what do you do? I'm really comfortable writing women, and I love my characters... I see no need for anymore men in the story at this time, but I'm afraid it won't appeal to a large enough audience. 3 prominent women to 1 supporting male? Too much?

    >too many women

    I’m sorry, I don’t know what those words mean in that order. 

    >do you ever think, “there should be a guy in here somewhere?”

    No. 

    >I see no need for anymore men in the story at this time, but I’m afraid it won’t appeal to a large enough audience.

    STOP IT. 

    You’re trying to sell a thing you haven’t even written yet.  Write the story you would write if you were just going to put it in a drawer.  

    Write the story you want to read.

    Lumberjanes is all women and is kicking ass. So, no, there is no such thing as “too many women” in a story.

    I love Lumberjanes.

    Write the story you would write if you were just going to put it in a drawer.” Ahhhhhhhh that’s such good advice! And also good advice on there not being such a thing as too many women in a story. We’re still so vastly underrepresented, and women want to read stories about ourselves. The only people who are gonna complain are jerks and who even cares what they think?
