As a female who endured my own menarche and as the mother of four teen girls, I so WISH there was a fantasy element to menarche. Nope. It's about as real and ugly as it gets, so I don't understand her statement at all!
Tornado, fanfic writers have beta readers for a reason. Do you have one? I have three ladies helping me with my original manuscript because I need the help. You can re-work it yourself or ask for help from someone you know. I know that Amanda Beth doesn't use one, but I've been very blessed with the ones I've chosen.
