  • You’re going in the right direction, at least. “Perfect” characters are the ones who are the least interesting. So, yes, you need character flaws.

    The immaturity is a good one. Really messy or really organized are also good, although I think the couple idea involving them might be a little too cliche.

    Keep on writing!

  • how about someone who is really “booksmart” but socially inept?

    another interesting flaw may be a busybody type that gossips and stirs up trouble and doesn’t necessarily realize it
