SO I’M writing my NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) installment the other day, and it occurs to me that my protagonist isn’t particularly likeable (though she does have some good qualities). Does that matter? Do I have to redeem her at the end of the story? Would you read a story that has an unsympathetic protagonist? Would you care about such a protagonist enough to read to the end of the story? I’d be curious to know your thoughts. Email me.
