PostSubject: Oh no! Mary Sue!   Thu Oct 02, 2014 1:12 pm

On chat this week the question came up of what exactly is a Mary Sue (an unrealistically perfect female character) and how does one know if one has written one.  There's a lot of literature on-line about Mary Sue and her male counterpart , Marty Stu, but I thought folks might find it useful to have a link to some of the "tests" you can take to see if you've created a Mary Sue.

The Universal Mary Sue Litmus Test

The Writer's Mary Sue Test

Mary Sue Test (University of North Carolina)
http://www.unc.edu/~jemarti/marysuetest/

Hope folks find these useful.
