The Antagonist's Handbook

About the Antagonist’s Workbook

I think it’s high time we writers gave a little love to our most important characters: Our antagonists.

Our heroes can only ever be as good as the challenges they face. Now, there are many types of antagonists, of course, and many ways to get the most out of them. This workbook is meant to help writers develop a villain who can support a great hero and a great story.

Every great story is actually two stories: The one you tell, from the protagonists’ point(s) of view, and the an entirely different story, where the hero is your story’s antagonist. It’s every bit as full and meaningful as the protagonist’s story, but, with rare exceptions, it’s never told.

And, like our perfect antagonist, we’ve got a clever plan, and we’re going to execute it ruthlessly.
