I don't remember where (otherwise I'd post a link), but on a blog recently there was talk about writing characters of the opposite gender.
Which got me thinking, I've written 1st POV from a MMC before, but have I gotten it right?
The hardest thing I find write about guys is when they show emotion. I mean, I know they feel, they're human, but most of my literary (and film!) references don't show crying or frustrated deconstructions of rooms. Kay, I've seen the later, but it was a comedy, so I'm counting it as not really real cuz it was done for laughs. I mean, it's very common to see women cry in films, and I'd assume that men cry in real life, but I've never really seen it myself (out and about or in media).
So, you manly men out there, if you don't mind answering, have you ever shown intense emotion in front of people? Who? In public? What emotion? And why?
Ladies, if you have some stories to share of observing our males counterparts, do share.
