Personal Quote:

[on his troubles developing female characters] I can see only how they react to me. I can describe how they look, how they sit, how they dress, tons of things. But only on the surface. My perception stops there. I've decided my whole life long I don't understand them. I think they're all crazy. I know they're not. See more »
