Where I am in the writing process: Unpublished. Been writing since Nov. 2008.
My current problem(s): So I started this week rolling along on my word count. Man, I even wrote 3,000 words in one day. Then I read a fantastic book (Fallen) and it all backfired on me. I started second guessing myself as a writer. This tends to happen every time I read something especially good and it always takes a few days more me to regain my confidence. But until that happen--this really bits.
This week's question: Character Flaws. Okay, I know I need those to make my characters realistic, but I also know the flaws shouldn't make the reader hate your character. So what are some good, hero-worthy, none-hateable, character flaws?
