Creating a Villain

As I dive into the 7th day of NaNoWriMo, I get to do something I absolutely love (maybe more than is healthy) and create a villain. See, in Riley’s world, even the protagonists can go bad…if only for a day. This villain-to-be is such a character, though I do believe the villain part may be around till the end. Character arcs are a fun thing to see happen over time in a series, and this one will be a bumpy ride. To compliment today’s undoing (in the story, y’all), I came across the perfect song to fit the moment. No doubt, it will be on repeat for a  majority of the day. Enjoy…

Writer friends – I’m curious – what are your favorite villain songs to write to? For me, each character has their own story, and their own song. 😉

For the Find Me Fans…

A crack pierced the quiet of the woods, and inside the trees a startled pair of birds took to flight. My elbows groaned in noisy protest as I pushed myself upright, scanning the trees for intruders. “What was that?”

The top of Jin’s faux-fur lined boots peeked out from under the faded denim of his snow-damp jeans as his squat turned into a kneel. He pivoted, pointing to his right where a cluster of trees were still shaking off white dust from their overloaded branches.

“Frozen branch must have fallen.”

A pain in my ankle flared with heat as I crawled rather ungraciously into a stand, swallowing enough cold air to crystallize my lungs. “Right. A frozen branch. Sure. Let’s go back inside.”

Jin, who stood with zero urgency, laughed softly. “So, it takes the trees to get you out of the cold?”

“Not the trees,” I corrected. “Just what’s hiding inside them.”
