Last year, one of the things that kind of tripped me up in my attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days was the antagonist. I found that I liked writing his scenes so much that I really never got into my protagonist’s head. He was a cross between Darth Vader and Hans Gruber and, yes, he was definitely a dick.
The whole time I’ve been searching for this year’s NaNoWriMo plot, The Director (as last year’s antagonist was commonly known) has been scratching at the door. He wants out, and I’ve finally decided that I’m going to let him out. I just have to figure out what he’s going to do. If The Director has his way, it’s going to be something nefarious.
