7 Tips on Creating a Complex Antagonist

When I first developed my story for Netherworld, I just created a villain simply so that my protagonist had some evil to fight against. But when I started questioning my villain’s motives, I realized that to have a full story, it is crucial to develop the villain because that’s the crux of the problems that create the story. Your villain is what drives your story; not just your protagonist’s motives, though those are important too.

There are no set rules for creating a villain; but there are guidelines, sure. Based on my experience, I have some advice on creating a well developed and complex villain. These are just my ideas and thoughts, and these may differ for many other writers (in which case, you can leave your own thoughts and opinions in the comment section below).

My Writing So Far in 2017 + A Wattpad Publication!

Things have shifted crazily with writing this past year. As most of you know, my NaNoWriMo 2016 novel Fiction’s Lie is on the way to indie publication through Amazon’s Createspace, but there’s a lot of other projects going on as we speak I type. I’ve developed new worlds and characters, rewrote some fanfiction, stressed out over Camp NaNoWriMo, and jumped back into my main project, Netherworld. 

As indie publication looms brightly on the horizon, I’ve started getting a little frightened with the fact that pretty soon, I’m going to have to put together deadlines and release dates and post schedules for marketing. Which means lots of organization and planning, which is why I aspire to be a time lord or invent a way to create clones of myself. If only, right?

Movie Review – Spiderman: Homecoming (With Spoilers)

I’ve seen some of the older Spiderman movies, and liked them despite their cheesiness. But after watching Homecoming, I realized that out of all the superheros, Spiderman/Peter Parker is not only the most relatable, but also a character I will always admire and learn from.

(Batman’s cool, too. *namaste bow*)
