Stagnant Villians

I’ve been reading David Farland’s, Million Dollar Outlines and I must tell you that so far it’s a close second to Orson Scott Card’s Characters and Viewpoint in terms of usefulness.

One of the big take-aways I got was that of having a stagnant villain. I realized that in my stories thus far, this has been an unknown issue to me. Adding an opportunity to have the villain reform or to become more evil will make the character more believable. In my latest short I actually made the villain become worse over the course of the story. In the beginning he is not a villain at all, but when given the opportunity to do things a little easier, he finds himself falling further into the clutches of greed and lust. This also gives me opportunities to have multiple try-fail cycles with the hero since he doesn’t realize the depths of depravity until too late.
