I found an excellent post this morning over at El Space – The Blog of L. Marie about antagonists and their motivations. Do you judge your characters? On what do you base that judgement? Are they “stock” bad guys or do you explore what made them do their bad deeds?
Check out the post here.
About Ol' Big Jim
Ol' Big Jim, has been a storekeeper, an embalmer, a hospital orderly, a medical biller, and through it all, a teller of tall tales. Many of his stories, like his first book, New Yesterdays, are set in his hometown of Piedmont, Alabama.
For seven years, he lived in the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, Amman, Jordan where he spends his time trying to visit each one of the thousands of Ammani coffee shops and scribbling in his ever-present notebook. These days, you can find him back stateside, still filling notebooks.
