Writing interesting villians

Conflict drives a story. The cat sat on the mat isn’t a story, but the dog sat on the cat’s mat…now we’re talking.

Conflict drives a story. The cat sat on the mat isn’t a story, but the dog sat on the cat’s mat…now we’re talking.Sarah loves to explore the grey areas in her work, because she believe that we’re all born with the capacity for both good and evil, and it is rare to find a person that is one hundred percent of either. A main character that is one hundred percent good is as boring as a bad guy who is one hundred percent bad. In this workshop, students write a scene about a conflict in their lives from the perspective of their antagonist. This workshop always leads to very interesting discussions!
