Tonight's soundtrack, "Dog Days" by Florence & The Machine. To make it better, watch the video as well. She's trippy in the best possible way. :)
I'm too lazy to go back and check, but I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this here before. As a writer, I have a REALLY hard time writing villains. I don't know why this is, although I think it has to do with being perhaps a bit too sympathetic. I honestly can't see anyone as irredeemable, and I never write villains that are self-servingly vile, because they don't seem realistic.
I mean, let's be honest...Adolf Hitler and his ilk are rare enough that we notice and remember forever.
My philosophy on villains can be pretty well summed up here.
Ah well. Perhaps that is tonight's writing assignment: a fantastic villain, redeemable or not. Let's get to it.
