Villians Need Love Too
No I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth. I've been working sporadically on my plotting, reading Writing the Breakout Novel, and being paranoid about getting ready to return to the US. I think I've been reluctant about continuing to write because I have scenes written and though I'm not in love with them I might need to rework the entire excalating plot. This book is a lot of action and ramping up means adding some more. I thought about adding a subplot with her brother. A love subplot, but I'm not sure. I'm not sure what kind of subplots I should add. I haven't written the end because I need to work on the rest of the plot before I truly know what's going to happen in the climax. My villian keeps whispering his secrets to me. Why he's doing this. What he hopes to gain. What he's going to do next time. What would make him satisfied with the ending. How he's going to make things tough for more characters if I'm willing to write about them. He's got an agenda. He thinks that what he's doing will make everything better. He'd also like a little more POV. Currently there are two scenes in his POV, but he appears more than those. He's subtle, creative, intriquing and the epitomy of beauty in a male. What more can a woman ask from her villian. :) The question is "Is he evil?" My friend, only time will answer that question. Only time.
