notfadeaway asked: I'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. 

"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. "

I think that, at some point, all of us who write forget this, and I’m so grateful to Kelly Sue for reminding us.

So today a little girl came into the library where I work in an Elsa costume and she looked just like Elsa and my boss made the mistake of walking up to her and saying “well hello, princess, how are you?” and the little girl just says “Excuse me, I am a queen” and walks away
