I'm working on a story idea and everything is coming together nicely except...I'm not excited about the female lead. The story is very clear in my mind. There are tons of characters and all of them are fun and interesting to me except for the protagonist. Thematically, she's supposed to be a princes-type nice girl who tries to help everyone because she is a contrast to another character who is sort of her opposite. I dont think there is anything wrong with a nicey nice character as long as it works for the story, it's just that she is kinda boring to write. Everytime there is a scene that is just about her, I get lost because I can't seem to find her "voice" or "spark." Because she is so nice, she lacks a bit of personality. And I dont want to give her the cliche dark past or hidden secret/agenda. Can't a character just be nice and yet interesting? Has anyone ever struggled with this? Is there anything that you've tried that was helpful?
