ABC 123(4)s of NaNo: V is for Villains

Standard

V is for villains.  You can’t skimp out on building your villains. You want to make them the character your readers love to hate. The one that makes them want to throw your book across the room. Make them evil. Give them a good reason why they do what they do; bad childhood, loss of a loved one, weird tick that makes them randomly shoot blond hair people, whatever. Just make sure you to flesh them out and give them life. No one is going to care that your heroes win out when the villain barely seen or discussed.

Day 22:  That holiday is creeping up people. Keep padding your word count so you don’t feel guilty while cramming your face with dead bird and baked fruits!
