Creating the Bad Guy

     When you’re writing a story, no matter what genre, you’ll have protagonist and an antagonist. The protagonist is the good guy, so that makes the antagonist the bad guy. When you’re creating your bad guy, there are several things you need to keep in mind.

     1) What is your bad guy’s (whom I’m going to call Bob) motive? Is it jealousy? Does he want to take over the kingdom/world/country?

     2) How does Bob obtain the funds, man power, and supplies to do whatever evil deed he has planned? Is Bob super rich? Does Bob create a fake charity? Does he steal the money? Does he live in a castle/mansion where he has hundreds of servants to do his bidding? Does he hire a bunch of hooligans from off the street?

     So when creating your villain, keep in mind motive and means!
