WIFYR--Day Four

Agent Joan Paquette had an interesting presentation the other day wherein she discussed the importance of having a really great antagonist.  An antagonist can do so much work for your story--drive the action, create conflict, engage our emotions.

I realized I never think in terms of creating antagonists.  But now I'm going to give it a try.  I'm going to stop viewing myself as a kindly creator and think of myself (according to Joan's advice) as my fictional universe's evil overlord.

WHICH WILL BE AWESOME.

I think you will make an excellent evil overlord.
