Unregretful killing

Why I probably need therapy

 

I kill women.  And I don’t mean that I’m confessing to murder either.  Or am I…?

I hate writing female characters.  I do not know why.  I will kill them off as soon as I can.  There have only been a handful of times that I have written a female that lived, and of those times one was severely messed up, one was was a vampire, and the others were in various horror stories.

And with that, in most of my horror/thriller/suspense writings my MC is female.  They are so easy to use because of the stereotypes that I can play with.  She is emotional, overthinking, and reactionary.  Ultimately: they are vulnerable.  And as a female myself, that is deeply concerning.  

This fact probably reveals some deep hidden part of me that should have been uncaged ages ago, but alas, here we are.  I. Don’t. Like. Writing. Female. Characters.  

Unregretfully.

The kicker is I love to read a book about a strong Female Character.  The hunger games, Divergent, The First law, most of the books written by Cassandra Clare, and several others that I cannot think of at the moment.  I love following them as they kick ass and take names.  But at the same time I hate romance because they are… well… Romantic.  I hate that women are so emotionally charged and how everything is about feelings.

So what I hate writing about with women, I love reading about, and what I like writing about women, I hate reading.  Crazy circle, right?

Again, I probably need therapy.
