Creating Villains that Readers Love to Hate

With Michael Leonard.
Sun at 11 am for 60 minutes.
In room Live Events 4.
Categorized as Writing.

We're discussing the process of creating villains that readers accept as real, and how to develop the villain up over time and get the reader emotional about the villain. We're also covering how to keep the sensation of danger and the possibility of failure vibrant and vivid, and when and why a reader rejects an event in the story as bogus or unrealistic. Writers, both experienced and aspiring, should not miss this important discussion.
