Tipsy Tuesday

Don't forget about your villain. I admit, I do struggle with this, but it's important to give your villain as much attention as your protagonist, even if much of what you know about him (or her) never makes it to the page.

One tip: Write your plot from the villain's POV. This will go a long way toward making him more than a cardboard cutout, mustache twirling stereotype.

Sometimes it makes them even more frightening when you can identify with a small part of them!!

Great Tipsy Tuesday! :)
