Last month we discussed how to create flawed protagonists without chasing readers away. Today Josiah DeGraaf, Hope Ann, and Brandon Miller tackle the other end of the spectrum—how to effectively write virtuous protagonists. They share their favorite examples of virtuous protagonists and explore what prevented them from being annoying.
