Tuesday Choice Words

Writing the second book of my children's fantasy trilogy, it's become clear that my 'villain', and that individual's motivations, is going to weigh heavily on how this and the final book shape up.

Steven Pressfield discusses how to let your antagonist or the concept of antagonism mould your novel, especially genre choice in Go Dark.


  1. I love to hate my villains. I have one who absolutely made my skin crawl while writing him. I really hated him.

  2. I actually love all my villains. In fact, I might love them more than my heroes. I think complex villains really are the key to an amazing story.

    1. They need to be interesting in some way. In the book I'm working on for NaNoWriMo, the villains we meet are mainly henchmen with the main villain just talked about.
