Statue of Marcellus* in the Louvre Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities
"What the heck is he thinking?"
Many women ask themselves this question very often. We just don't get men. I have a problem--my man character is a teenage boy. If anyone ever reads my manuscript I am hoping they don't say the same things that have been said about Edward Cullens.(Not saying I agree with that article.)
So how can we write what men think? I think first you have to accept that men and women are very different creatures mentally. So if you are like me and you need to learn to write believable men get out there and start learning. If you like to laugh while you learn, then watch this video about what Mark Gungor has to say about the differences between the sexes.
