Not sure how I should get more into the head of the chief protagonist seeing as I've not been a woman ever in my life.
Maybe this is why I normally enjoy writing short stories in preference to novels. It's easy to imbue characters with aspects of yourself and hard to have them behave in ways that you don't normally. It will be my job, over the course of the novel, to make sure that each character is distinct as a separate person. I don't know how well I have done that so far. I've a feeling that some of the characters behave too much like each other.
This'll all come out in the rewrite I suppose.
