A Tale of Two Brains

I like writing from a man's POV. I do... it's fascinating, but can be difficult. I've had more than one crit partner tell me, "Men don't talk that much. Cut back on the dialogue."

It's true. Men DON'T talk that much, at least not about relationship stuff, etc. Maybe about, oh, fishing or cars or guns, but not about how they feel.

It's an exercise in understanding the opposite sex.

Yesterday, I saw this video on a friend's Facebook page and it was absolutely PERFECT. Take a look and be prepared to laugh.

What do you think? Did you sit there and nod all the way through?

And, do you enjoy writing from the POV of the opposite sex? Why or why not?

This is my house, my husband, and my marriage. How truly appropriate, this guy hits the mail on the head.
