So I've been in a writing funk since 2013 and haven't written anything in a long time. I love telling stories and I want to be a screenwriter/producer/director when I grow up, but I NEED to start writing again. The thing is, I don't like forcing myself to write, because it doesn't feel right. However, I ALWAYS get inspired when reading a book, or watching a movie/TV show. Even reading ABOUT writing will sometimes get me in the writing mood. So to ease into it my writing mood, I have come here to find inspiration, and I have a slight problem. The girls in my story are too badass and the boys are too boring/dull. Eve though I'm a guy, I pretty much only write from a girl's POV. The thing is, I HATE weak and helpless girl characters and get annoyed by them in books, TV shows, and movies. So whenever I write, I try and have at least ONE of my girls as some cool and awesome chick who kicks butt. However the more I wrote, the more boring my MC would become and I would scrape the draft. Now most of my MC's are somewhat badass and headstrong. Now, obviously it also depends on the story, but I just get SO bored of a MC who doesn't know how to defend herself. However, this also makes ALL my boy characters WAY too dull or boring. I tried having that goofball guy who cracks jokes and is comedic relief, but I wasn't finding him very interesting. I tried the slightly goth guy who was cool, calm, and collected, but it was hard showing his emotions and he wasn't very relatable. My go-to romantic interests were basically a diamond with no flaws. Which made him the dullest of them all. So now I'm stuck with three characters I always include and I really need to change it up. The "Normal" girl: She's usually the MC, nice, friendly, outgoing, is scared when she gets dragged into the bigger picture but isn't afraid to step up when she needs to. Curious, but cautious, she will defend her friends even if she has to risk her own life. The "Badass" girl: She's headstrong, calculative, and smart. She knows what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. She usually has some kind of skill that excels her above the rest, and she is almost always a kickass when it comes to martial arts. Usually clashes with "Normal" girl. The "Golden Boy" guy: He's super nice, friendly, and would take a bullet for those he cares about. He won't let anyone get in harms way and he will sacrifice himself if needed. He usually acts like a father figure to the younger characters and is very caring. He's usually the MC's love interest. So after reading that, it's clear I need SOME kind of character which doesn't fall into these three categories. Especially the guy, I just can't seem to write a boy with a unique and likable personality. It's frustrating because all my MC girls are the same and all their love interests are the same, the only time when they aren't is if I use the "Badass" as my MC, but then I need to write in another MC which usually falls into the "Normal" girl category in order for the storyline to not be the badass MC solving everything in two chapters.
