Flawed Goodies?

Just a quick writing tip this week, but nonetheless it makes an important point.

How good are your main characters? You need to make them good enough for us to be rooting for them, but not so angelic that we start to hate them! People are flawed, so if you have a character who is ‘too good to be true’, readers will no longer believe in your story. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’re not sure about yours, why not get someone to read your novel and check, before you get too far in? (Pick someone you can be sure will be honest with you!)

Hope that helps!

Every blessing to you all,

Janet
