9) I only write what the story requires me to write, and women aren't necessary in my story.
Do you really think that women have nothing to add to your story? Really? Seriously? You don't see any value in having women in your book? You don't think they have something to say or anything to contribute? Okay, I'm not going to argue with you, there are several other posts on this topic that discuss the value of women in genre fiction.
Just let me ask you this: does your story require readers? Do you want women to buy your book? Female characters are probably a good bet in any story you want women to read. These days, most of the women I know are growing increasingly tired of seeing so little of themselves reflected in their reading material.
So, that's the end of the series. I hope you found it enjoyable, or at least vaguely interesting. ;) What are your thoughts on women in fiction? Big question, I know, so let's break it down to this: Who is your favorite female character in genre fiction?
