So, I've had an idea for who I wanted my main character to be. A girl who was bullied for being shy and sensitive, and now believes that the only way to get ahead in life is to be selfish and arrogant. She and her friends are very popular, and pick on those who aren't like them (though she will try to help someone improve if she feels enough for them). That's the gist of it. Unfortunately, most people I've talked to have hated this idea, saying that they would hate her and stop reading. And I have been struggling to find a goal for her to achieve. I was going to have her try to get out of her best friend's shadow, but people just got the impression that she wanted to be Head Bully, and that's not what I'm going for. I just can't think of a goal for her, and I'm thinking of giving up all together because people hate the idea. Any advice would be appreciated.
