Of course, not every writer is outliner, but I definitely am! I've learned can't think about the story and write the story at the same time. Outlining gives me the space to think first and write second .I've also found this process goes smoother if I have a series out outlines that get progressively more detailed. Here's how I approach outlining. #writing #writingtips #writinglife #novelwriting #noveloutline #brainstorming #awelltoldstory by dominique

Writing Lite Tip 15: Give your villain an endearing trait. The villains in your stories need to be almost as fleshed out as the protagonists. An evil character has to be more than a two-dimensional stereotyped criminal, sociopath, or mobster. Readers don’t necessarily have to like him/her, but they need to understand their motivation; perhaps even why they’re the way they are. It helps to give your villain some trait that makes them human and sympathetic. by flora
