09:37 pm - Making Myself Nervous

There is a "Dreams" entry I'd like you to take a look at if you want.

I have most of the first chapter/prologue written.  Tonight, I've been doing some research.  I need to decide about what year it takes place.  In looking at various maps of Ireland, I've decided mid-400s would be good.

Why?

That's when Christianity started making its way into Ireland.  That may not be a key point in the story, but it does play a part in that the main character ("Phillip") has a prejudice against those of the "new religion."

I've also almost decided what area of Ireland, though that's not completely set yet.  I need to find a topographic map to see what the landscape around that area is.  If it's not what I want it to be, it'll have to be in a different area.

I'm going to do the research as I go.  Otherwise, I'll get bogged down in the research and never get the thing written.

I'm loving it so I don't want that to happen.  But, I have to admit, I'm making myself nervous.

Why?

I haven't written much from a male POV.  And what I have has been done in quite short spurts.  (Hmmm...  quite punny considering some things that will be coming up in the storyline.  ;))

Any females out there who have written from a male POV?  How did it go for you?  Was it harder/easier than writing from a female POV?
