NaNo, here I come! With my paranormal fantasy, which actually kind of takes place in a city so it's urban as well.
Which comes with its own set of problems - stereotyped characters for one.
I know strong heroines are all the rage, and they should be - because look at the alternative..
But I've read an awful lot of covers that boast about a strong, sassy heroine who takes no attitude from anyone - and then, surprise of surprise, the heroine actually turns out to be a fairly normal person who flips off her boss once.
So I guess I'm asking this - what are you sick of in your heroines? What do you want to see more of? Who is your favorite heroine of all time?
