How many Kylies are there on this site? Do all of them have to have messy buns? Why does everyone love Starbucks so much? Why does every heroine have to have some sad back story? Why does everyone have to look like a model? Is there some really small gene pool that I don't know about which means everyone looks the same? 

Where's the fun in having a boring character?!

Here's how to make a character that will surprise everyone.

Honestly I'm working on a book not out yet and I need a basic girl that doesn't look like a super model just your everyday girl. And doesn't wear to many crop tops

I think any OC is good unless it's Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way, (or any other horrifyingly terrible Mary Sue)

Thank you for pointing out that all the beautiful brown haired, tall and witty girls can go back where they came from and let the actual humans take form in these books.
