How do I avoid making Mary Sues?
I have a character in a book I'm escritura that I think is in danger of being a Mary Sue. I'm just a few chapters in but here is why I think she might be a Mary Sue:
*She is beautiful.
*She's an orphan, who has been abused por many foster parents, but she's still a positive person.
*Almost all the main characters like her.
*I haven't yet dado her any flaws
I don't know if she's exactly a "Mary Sue" but I can see her becoming one. How do I avoid this? And how do I give her flaws without the seeming forced
