boy or girl?
My writing genre of choice is YA paranormal. I absolutely love reading it and writing about it...but I'm torn over my MC. Should I write from the perspective of a boy (since I was once, many moons ago, a boy) or does it matter? Will potential readers enjoy the story more if they know the author is writing at least from the same sex?
Help me out here, folks. What do you guys think? Should I stick with the current female lead I have, or should I send her on her merry way and replace her with a male lead?
And what about your MCs? Are they 100% different from you (in every way!) or do you stick with what you feel you know the most about?
