A is for Antagonist
I have to admit I don't think I'm very good at creating multi-dimensional antagonist characters. My better (in my opinion!) antagonists are not people but situations, institutions or regimes. I find it much easier to write about a character fighting to try to get out of a difficult situation than to write about them fighting against a person. Even when I have a person as the antagonist I still find that they're representative of an institution or regime.
I think my challenge from this post will be to try to create some antagonists as characters in their own right, rather than have them appear only as a necessary plot device.
A is also for Arlee Bird - the guy who came up with the idea of the blogging A-Z challenge! I'm looking forward to trying this for the first time, so a big THANK YOU to Lee for starting the challenge :)
