It really doesn’t matter if your main character (MC) is beautiful, talented, handicapped or a dog, your MC has to WANT something.
And your MC has to have a problem, a problem that, in addition to the antagonist’s bullying tactics, stops her from getting what she wants.
Sometimes it’s a mental problem (vertigo). Sometimes its physical (he’s got to get across the country to see his baby born).
Sometimes it’s that his girlfriend’s parents think he’s a creep (Romeo and Juliet)
So way, up front at the beginning of your writing (not necessarily the beginning of the story) your character has to want something.
And then, there’s this problem.
