George R.R. Martin on writing women
George Stroumboulopoulos: There's one thing that's interesting about your books. I noticed that you write women really well and really different. Where does that come from?
George R.R. Martin: You know, I've always considered women to be people.
Cracked.com: Right now I'm reading a book from mega-selling fantasy author George R. R. Martin. The following is a passage where he is writing from the point of view of a woman -- always a tough thing for men to do. The girl is on her way to a key confrontation, and the narrator describes it thusly: "When she went to the stables, she wore faded sandsilk pants and woven grass sandals. Her small breasts moved freely beneath a painted Dothraki vest ..." That's written from the woman's point of view. Yes, when a male writes a female, he assumes that she spends every moment thinking about the size of her breasts and what they are doing. "Janet walked her boobs across the city square. 'I can see them staring at my boobs,' she thought, boobily." He assumes that women are thinking of themselves the same way we think of them. Do you see what I'm getting at?
… What a day.

lonely-lovebird: They obviously know how to bend in a fight that’s the style of a pro-bending match, but they might not actually be Masters of their elements. I mean, is it canon they’re orphans? If they’ve been street rats their whole lives, they probably were never properly trained. …
Critic: Hi, this is a really great picture, I love your painting skills! But you went overboard with the lighting a bit, so the character ended up looking really washed out. I recommend that you look at some guides to lighting, like links like this this, etc, so you can work on that a bit--because you really have some skills, and with some work you can get even better!
