Question: I have to write an essay on a strong female character (not the celebrity) and I can't think of any movies that have a strong female character besides My Sister Keeper. I was going to use Sarah Fitzgerald.

I'm used to writing in first person, or at least having a female MC, so I guess I'd have to say female. At the moment I'm writing in third. I'd say I have slight difficult developing my male characters; partly because I don't have much experience with the male side of things. *shrugs* BQ: Well, when I found out about NaNoWriMo about a week and a half ago, I instantly new I wanted to do it. I decided I wanted to write a Fantasy, because I'd never done so before, and couldn't think of a better time to try. And then all of a sudden, a really compelling scene popped into my head, and I just ran with it. My word count is 9435. I'm *hoping* to reach 12,000 by tonight.

Well, I think that it is easier, for me, to develop girls more than guys. My main character tends to be female, though I will usually include a male main character with less emphasis on the 'main'. BQ: My current project was inspired by a series of dreams I had about vampires (I know, I know...but it isn't because of Twilight because I have never read the books). All the dreams took place at night. One was a very interesting chase scene, another was a dream that one of the characters in my project will have concerning his dead lover's transformation, and another was a scene where this woman is seduced. Those vivid dreams are the best because they are so real, almost like a movie. Nanowrimo: Ha, my word count is sad.

I develop my male characters more because I'm *not* a boy.. so I can't really draw any true emotion so I make it.. or at least try to. BQ: I've been trying to come up with a good answer to this actually, but I can't come up with one. I was on Y!A and someone asked what ethnicity our characters usually are and I decided I wanted to write a French character. A few days later, I found a title I wanted to use. NaNo was coming up, so I was trying to figure out a story to go with the title and I chose the Vietnam War. I threw the French character in there (which is a good source for conflict.. and I didn't really realize it when I decided on it) and walah.. there's my story. BQ2: I quit, actually. There's an issue with time and research, so I'm not going to rush through it and do it right.

Movies literally have a formula: Every movie HAS to have a good guy or hero, a bad guy or villain and a romantic theme amongst some other elements. Consider this, the hero is a hero for what reason? There has to be a reason for his fighting. http://gizmodo.com/5476286/the-formula-f... I had a conversation w/ someone regarding for the movie Bourne Identity. My argument was that it was a great movie until the love story started. But the reality is that w/o the love story there would be no interest by MASS movie going audience. The reason I felt that Bourne ID was a good movie was because the movie had the potential to stray from the typical hero 'saves the day - for love' because here the hero had a reason for fighting and that was to understand himself. From their the movie could have gone in a very philosphical direction in the sense of 'who am I, how did I get here and where do I go from here'. But the unfortunate reality is that such a story line might have gotten critical acclaim but would not have done well at the box office. The Matrix is actually another great study in the movie formula, but how this movie dealt w/ the love story and how the love story was weaved into the story line to make the love story an integral part was done very well. However, IMO the Matrix could have done just as well at the box office had the love story never been broached. Consider Wolverine - Here is a character who has a reason to fight that might have nothing to do with love (let's just pretend that's the case for now). So if his story line goes in that direction and he has no memory and his reason for being is to find out what happened and seek revenge. What happens when he does find out and gets the revenge? The story is over. But if he seeks revenge for love? That's PASSION!! That's heart!! It tugs at our heartstrings and we somehow feel a connection to a hero like that.

Because women tend to enjoy films more if they have a bit of romance in them, and the film makers want to attract female audiences. Male audiences might be satisfied to see Harrison Ford or Brad Pitt just having adventures and no romance, but females want to see him fall in love with the heroine.
