Thank you again for your input. I’m going to go ahead with writing her as flawed and not worry right now whether I “over do” it or not. I can always make adjustments and revisions after I reach “the end” in the first draft. It doesn’t seem to me that the story’s going to be interesting without following her progress from naive and spoiled in her sheltered ignorance of the “real world” to a strong, independent woman of character. Without that, it’s going to be just a series of episodes strung together by the fact that they all happen to the same person.
