Once asked to provide a male perspective on writing male characters, Eric Witchey had to laugh out loud. After all, writing the male perspective came to him naturally. He didn't have to think about it. Writing the female perspective was something he had to learn. Writing from another cultural perspective was something he had to learn. The two learned sets of techniques had a lot in common. This seminar examines techniques for developing narrative verisimilitude when working outside of our personal lives and experiences. Whether you're non-Anglo trying to develop white bread and mayonnaise characters, an Anglo writing outside the white-bread world, a man writing a female character, or a woman writing a male character, the techniques described in this session will help you make the leap to another perspective
