Help! My Story Has the Mary-Sue Disease
Mary-Sue Disease is like Chicken Pox: Every author’s work comes down with it at least once and it’s not hard to cure …if you know how. Have you been told that your character is a “Mary Sue” because they have cool traits? RUBBISH. Or that “Mary-Sue” means any awesome female character? NONSENSE. Or that admitting Mary-Sues are badly written and need improvement is anti-feminist? BULLSHIT. This book has real advice about how to make your awesome character with all those cool traits actually work. And you know what? With a little chicken soup and love, any story can overcome Mary-Sue Disease and star a well-rounded, awesome protagonist.
