Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. (…) THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people. (x)
Not sure who I’m quoting, but didn’t want to lose such great advice!
