|"But I was looking forward to Best Dystopian Fiction and........|
Eh, you know what. It's cool. I'll probably be on this one as well.
Who is the BEST heroine in fiction.
1- As always, I leave definitions up to your best judgement because I'd rather be inclusive. A heroine should be a main character in a story or one of two or three in a story with multiple main characters. However, I'm not going to count the pages of your nomination's time in a book to make sure they're really major. Please no minor characters. (Hermione would be fine. Eponine would be pushing it.) Further, a heroine doesn't have to be a "good person" but the hero/protagonist milieu does tend to suggest that redeeming qualities should be there. While complex characters like Cersei Lannister are acceptable, let's keep the Cruela De'Ville and Ursula types off our poll.
2- You may nominate two (2) heroines. (Remember that I am a horrid and unyielding power hungry monster* here at Writing About Writing. To encourage reading and reading comprehension I will NOT take any authors beyond your second nomination.)
3- You may (and should) second as many nominations of others as you wish. No heroine will be going on to our poll that doesn't get at least one second.
4- Please put your nominations here. I will take books nominated as comments to this post on other social media; however, they may not get the seconds you need because no one will see them.
In a couple of weeks we'll get the poll fired up based on your nominations. It's all up to you.
*As part of my ongoing megalomania Lisbeth Salander will be on this poll.
