Moral Villains

First off, let’s set the record straight: I AM DONE WITH THE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING! And with four entire days to spare. That’s a record, people. I am usually done wayyyyyyy before now. But let’s not quibble and just be grateful, shall we?

I’ve got what I think will be a treat for you today. I’m at Katie Weiland’s Wordplay today, talking about villains. And not just your run-of-the-mill villain. Today I’m talking about some of the most interesting and frightening bad guys: the moral ones.

Moral villains? Isn’t that an oxymoron? Nah. Most villains do live by a moral code; it just differs from what is generally accepted in society. And these antagonists are made even more creepy when you realize that they whole-heartedly believe that what they’re doing is right.

So pop on over and get some tips on how to create a moral villain. There may even be a Christmas treat there for those who join the conversation. :).
